This week’s MotD theme: Crowning Glory
A Slavic team of photographers, stylists, makeup artists and promoters known as “Treti Pivni” (or third rooster in English) gathered together to share with the world the beauty and uniqueness of Ukrainian culture. This particular photo caught my eye for its overall stunning beauty: the young woman, the jewelry, the clothing, the mandala-like flowers, and, of course, the spectacular mandala-like crown.
From BoredPanda about these floral crowns it states:
Traditionally, these floral headdresses are worn by young, unmarried women as a sign of their “purity” and marital eligibility. In pre-Christian times, they were even thought to protect innocent girls from evil spirits. Currently, after the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution, the headdresses are being worn in daily life to symbolize national pride.
