14477Re: pictures of women's clothing in the Polish/Lituaninan Commonwealth
- Aug 20, 2009At the "Lietuvos Pilys" castle website:
go Radiniai> Keramika> Kokliai >Loviniai and there are a few painted and unpainted 16th century tiles.
The 'Karūnėlės' section has some male shield-bearers, too.
Abraham de Bruyn (1540 - 1587) also drew Lithuanians in his costume book
"Omnium pene Europae, Asiae, Aphricae atque Americae Gentium Habitus"
(They are, like most costume books, redrawings see: http://pearl.livejournal.com/132435.html for more examples)
Oh, and for comparison, the 'Renaissance in Estonia' website:
For peasant and lower-class dress in Lithuania based on archaeological finds, see:
Saule Urbanviciene "Survivals of Paganism in 14th-17th century Graves in Lithuania" in Michael Müller-Wille [ed] Rom und Byzanz im Norden: Mission und Glaubenswechsel im Ostseeraum während des 8.-14. Jährhunderts (Franz Steiner Verlag, 1997)
Hope that helps,
