The Golden Woman of Kupala by Cecile Elstein - framed artists print Edition 17 1989 size: 130x104cm - Paper: Arches 88 

In 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down there was a feminine feeling of great enthusiasm for unity and regeneration. I was amazed that this event touched me so deeply in my little world in Manchester. I made this image to acknowledge the generous atmosphere at that time.

A tutor of the Russian language from Manchester University visited my studio. He told me that the ancient revels of Kupala, the mythical god of Summer regeneration could now to be celebrated again. He saw this image and understood its exuberance.
