Mist and Moonshine Print Wool Large Scarf
Mist and Moonshine - Inspired by the "The Elf-hill Illustration The uplifting colourful print from my new collection is called "Mist and Moonshine" and is inspired by my muse Harry Clarke "Elf on the Hill" illustration for the fairytale collection from 1916 Hans Christian Andersen. The Elf-hill is a fairy tale about a feast held by the Elf King, in his mound, for the Gnome Chief of Norway and his two sons. The Elf King's daughters, paraded before the guests as potential brides, display their talents. 'The elf girls…danced with shawls which were woven of mist and moonshine.'
