If you want, Léa Silhol wrote an excellent story about them in her "Conte de la tisseuse" book. For your notice, I haven't found the title in english since I'm french myself. But the story is absolutely amazing.

I just realized....I really wish there was a "part 3" to these paintings. They would look so lovely together as a set on my wall!!
