About Big Heart, Strong Hands
This bodi of work is the story of the women on the Estonian islands of Kihnu and Manija in the Baltic Sea. Geographically isolated, over centuries a strong sense of community spirit and a steadfast attachment to their ancestor's customs developed. Often viewed as the last matriarchal society in Europe, the older women here take care of almost everything on land as their husbands travel the seas.
Now Sold out so pick one up before they are gone.
