" The park of the Palace of Versailles is a big source of inspiration to draw a design. Will you find all the clues on this one ?

I draw first a ribbon of window panes to frame the drawing. Those window panes come from the stone floor of the terrace of the Palace.

 

Then I draw in the center the mask of the Sun King. It could only throne the center of such a royal composition.

You can notice the lazy statues at the edge of ponds, and the elegant vases along the flowerbeds.

Will you recognize everywhere the little animals of the fountain of Latona ? Do you know the story ? 

Latona, mother of Apollo and Diana, mistress of Jupiter, was forced to flee owing to the jealousy of her rival Juno. One day, after arriving in resent-day Turkey, she approached a pool in a marsh to drink the water. Local peasants prevented her and in her fury she laid a curse on them which changed them into frogs."

  • You may hand wash in warm water with soap specifically for silk.  Delicately pass scarf in water for 2-4 minutes, but do not completely submerge - do not scrub or brush.  Next rince and press out water by pushing scarf against the base of the sink.  Do not twist or wring.   Dry flat on top of a white towel.  Do not hang, put in dryer,  or put in direct sunlight.  Do not iron. 

     

    Other advice:

     

    Do not put perfume, lotion or cream in direct contact with scarf.   Be sure to unknot as soon as possible after wearing and lay flat or fold in square to avoid harsh wrinkles.   Keep scarf out of sunlight and dust for best results.
