Ravens, with their simple beauty and impressive intellect, are an especially rich source of Norse mythology and played an important role in the settlement of Iceland. They inspired Stephannie Tallent a traditional yet modern pair of Nordic mitten, very popular in Iceland.
Les grands corbeaux noirs font partie de l’imaginaire islandais. Stephannie Tallent en fait ici une interprétation moderne sur une paire de moufles traditionnelles nordiques. Les moufles de ce type étaient très populaires en Islande comme on peut le voir dans les musées locaux.
