Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

My first impression was that the hats they are wearing look comfortable and appear to fit very well. The woman's appears somewhat like a mask, from Mardi Gras perhaps, and made of feathers forming to her face. The man's hat more resembles pea pods, and I thought first of the Green Giant, but I think he looks more like a Breugel peasant. The pictures, in light of the title (thank you for the translation!) seem representative of comfort, and how touch enables seeing.
