Where can I find this in Berlin?
A woman in black, costume-like clothes is sitting in front of us. Her left arm is placed around a little child, both of which are wearing headgear. The woman’s headgear is made out of fur. The hands of the woman are adorned with gemmed rings, the chest region of her dress is embellished with silver necklaces, and she wearing silver earrings. Even though the woman doesn’t look poor, as a result of her jewellery, you can still observe the hardness in her facial expressions and the detachment in her glance and feel the toughness of her job and everyday life. The direct gaze in the child’s eyes, who is also missing a certain light-heartedness, supports this impression.
