Our next shoe is called "Blue Tulip" and is inspired by some of the most unique places in the world. We wanted to make an exception by getting out of the great paintings of the Prado Museum and bringing the mind to an almost medieval village in northern Romania.
The so-called "Happy Cemetery" is a work of art from the last century where people will not mourn the loss of their loved ones.
but they're going to laugh at every comic or fable told in the lapida! In such a way that the worst defects or manias of the deceased are taken and used to create an innocent humour and make you laugh! Small paragraphs of monologue, which speak of the life of the deceased with humor and joy, characterizing him as a fable character.
Carved oak crosses, oil portraits on top of the stone, vivid blue and yellow colours add freshness and life to such a unique place. Far from being a cemetery, it is a museum of art and humour that is unique in the world.
From here we get those vivid colors for our next model and add that painted wooden heel, as artisans work in this area of northern Romania.
