Cirque de classique
In 1948 a famous artist named Bovil had a vision that a little village in the north of Värmland, Sweden, should celebrate the traditional Lucia-day with a parade.
The parade then fell asleep in the 60's, just to be waken up in 2014 by Bovils son. 2016 the parade named The Lucia Carnival once again rolled the streets in a snow covered village.
My tribute to the carnival was Cirque de classique - a circus wagon.
I wanted it to have a touch of the classics, christmasspirit and festivities.
Red and offwhite, with a lion jumping thru a ring of gold-tinsel "fire".
The circus crew were dressed in vintage fur coats and 40s inspired hairdos, and for the carnival effect I created pillbox hats.
