Samodiva Flash by Cris

samodivi

The samodiva is a bulgarian mythical creature; a most fascinating one. Samodivas are beautiful women who live at the end of the world and come to dwell among us for a few months of the year. They are passionate music lovers, they often abduct lads to play to their dance gatherings in the woods. They live in the mountains and go to the highest peaks to brush their long, long hairs. They can cause or heal many illnesses, depending on the attitude of people towards them. All of the plants depicted on the painting are favorites of the samodiva – burning bush, rosa canina, mistletoe, geranium and ivy.
