12. September 2019
– Screen-printed on 3mm-plywood, C24 Pechmarie / The pitchen Mary / La Mairie de poix [sic].
– Brothers Grimm’s Frau Holle / Ludwig Bechstein’s Gold Mary and Pitch Mary.
– The Mother Holle fairy tale includes the Good and the Lazy Daughter. In German, it’s Frau Holle with Goldmarie and Pechmarie. More English translations I have found so far: Mother Hulda, Golden Daughter, Golden Mary, Bad Daughter, Bad Girl.
