This is a hand painted, one of a kind, metal can.
The collection BABA is a series of 9 hand painted one of a kind metal containers, each with a different female figure inspired by Baba Dochia, a representation of the divine feminine from Romanian mythology. They are 9 versions of the wise old woman / the crone, one for each of the first 9 days of March – days observed in the Romanian folk calendar. These figures are my modern interpretations of this ancient fertility cult that existed throughout Europe. Each Baba has an oracular function just as in the Romanian myths and thus comes with an oracle reading, which you receive in written form with the package.
