The Wild Swans

The story of the swans takes you to the enchanting realm of childhood, where globeflowers bloom and birds can assume human form. The inspiration for this pattern comes from childhood memories of globeflower fields and the movie "Wild Swans" (1987). As a child, Kätlin often immersed herself in nature, fondly recalling the fields of globe flowers she used to frequent. Sadly, these flowers have either vanished or become exceedingly rare in Estonia, her homeland, today.

The film "Wild Swans," based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale of the same name, captivated Kätlin during her childhood. The story centers around love and determination leading to the salvation of a princess's brothers from a witch's spell.

The swans in the story are portrayed as magical creatures with the ability to see the world from unique perspectives - the sky, the water, and the land. They symbolize purity, beauty, and wisdom. Swans have since become a recurring motif in Kätlin's other patterns as well.
