They tell: “She sym­bol­izes the essence of the mod­ern chameleon, the per­fec­tion of a nat­ural beauty as well as the provoca­tive woman, the desire to express the range of her per­son­al­ity from seduc­tress to inno­cent, all of which is at the heart of the collection”.

The model is Mal­go­sia Bela from Poland with very beau­ti­ful face fea­tures, I think.

The India of sym­bols and thou­sands of gods, where even cows and ele­phants are made up and ‘bejew­elled’.
