Fortune teller


  Clothing loosely based on Caravaggio's painting Fortune teller (1595-98) deposited in Louvre. The woman is dressed in linen shirt and black skirt widely gathered at waist. The upper layer is a cover typical for Gypsy woman's clothing. (The word " gypsy" is used in period sense without any pejorative meaning). The rectangular cover is possible to use as a blanket. Woman is barefoot.
