The Direction of the West

This one-of-a-kind hand painted silk gown in shimmering silk satin honors the direction of the West, the powers of Water. It features the flora and fauna of the sea as well as feathers, bells and semi-precious stones, all tools of the shamanka. The dress is embellished with a poem by Rilke called The Starving Exhausted Daughters, about
the perils of an existence without the fructifying energy of Eros, the feeling function of human species. The capelet has the motif of the jelly-fish, graceful and undulating in its aquatic environment.

The Direction of the West honors the feeling self, one who is in touch with her feelings and emotions and has the courage and will to act on these feelings on behalf of other souls. The Season of the West is Autumn and the time is twilight.
