Little Marya Morevna

A II part of visual development of Marya Morevna from the 'Deathless' by Catherynne M. Valente.

Originally, I though to include a wolf design - Morevna's unspoken "sigil" according to the book - into a dress pattern, but a more suitable solution came to my mind, which both stay true to the source and underline the young age. A toy wolf. At the turn of the 20th century, apart from classic teddy bears, there were lambs, elephants and even pretty eerie monkeys. Seeing such a variety of stuffed menagerie, it is possible to muse over that there might be a wolf. If not… where if not in a faerie tale may impossible became possible?
