"Flesh and blood, of the living and the dead, had to be buried deep, because out in the open it was bait for the wicked creatures in the surrounding woods."
The original brief was to design a gown based on a combination of two Waterhouse paintings: the famous "Ophelia" (1905 - blue dress embellished with lions rampant around the hem), and "Ophelia by the pond" (1894 - white gown, again emblazoned with heraldic golden lions). Midst consultation with the client, we added inspiration from another Waterhouse painting: the slashed sleeves of the painting,"The Lady Clare" (1900).
