the biggest amount of patina or freedom in patina






The Statue of Liberty in New York got its green patina by oxidation of the copper. The Burghers of Calais by Auguste Rodin have an almost black patina on bronze. Patina is an oxidation layer on metal objects. So there are more patina's then just this green one.
The Statue of Liberty symbolizes the welcoming of all: returning Americans, immigrants and guests. And did you know that that important piece of land in ancient times was owned by the people of my country? They dutch changed the colony New Amsterdam ( now New York) for the country Suriname as often is said.
For me symbolises this statue the value of freedom.

And now about the clothings. I realy love love love this mesh sweater from Maitreya. The folds curve around the body so marvelous. That is why i made so much pictures from many sides. It accentuate the beauty of Nic's back so gorgeous. Yes, i just can speak about it in superlatives.
I also can become lyrical about the mesh boots from Maitreya. And last but not least my ajour leggings, so happy with them.
The short pants from mon tissu give the impression to be mesh, but they aren't. Quality of that shop is super.
The good observer can see that on one picture i wear dark eyes whereas on most pictures i wear patina coloured eyes. The dark ones are from Fascism> you can find them in the groupnotices.
My green are another version of eyes that i always wear. Same can be said of the skin. This is the version of my skin with the green eyeshadow. The necklace i showed before, but i wear now the grey version.
The hair is from the sale at truth district. watch the hairpins..so cute.
Well i hope you will like my total set as much as i do >>laughing.
