Femme au Calen N° 1

Femme au Calen N° 1

Avaibility: In stock

woman with an oil lamp

Old, bent woman who lights her way with the aid of a little Roman oil lamp, the ‘Calen’ (which dates from antiquity). Some identify her with the old lady whose limitless devotion was noticed during the great plague which raged in Marseilles in 1720. A big, handwoven cashmere shawl with fringes (brought direct from India) covers her shoulders.
