Mucha - Byzantine Brunette


This unexpected find in a toy shop in Munich is from a set of two called Byzantine Heads, the other half being a blonde. They are decorative panels from 1897 where women wear highly ornate jewellery in their hair, which is evocative of Byzantine design. Love the colourful stamp dedicated to one of the best-known German artists and children's book authors Janosch, as on the previous lizard postcard :)
