Since I'm obsessed with Art Nouveau I thought I'd give you another obscenely art nouveau piece. I just love the femminine beauty of Art Nouveau. Her character is Birdalone from the William Morris tale The Water of the Wondrous Isles. Her character is that of a strong female that is beautiful, yet doesn't use that as her only quality. She is valued as an equal in learning and capabilities to men of her time and not stuck in a typical gender role. This brings her character exhuberant happineness because she isn't constricted by the typical rules of most King Arthur tales. The soft femminine woman that never raises her voice, is completly domesticated, and agrees with everything that is said to her. She participates in all activites and even at one point in the story makes Arthur himself feel threatened by such a strong powerful will as she exhibits.
