A Short, Non-Zombie Break

By in sketches, women


Just to give you a breather amidst all the un-death, here’s a sketch of a Rhinemaiden from The Ring of the Nibelungen. There are three of them in the opera, Woglinde, Wellgunde, and Flosshilde. I guess this is Flosshilde.

“Rhinegold” was also the name of an American beer it looks like they might be selling here in this drawing. I don’t know if they make it any more. I can check on Google, but better to leave some things gathering dust inside the deep recesses of memory. In this case it was the memory of a Mad Magazine parody ad. Nothing to do with Wagner, however!

The Rhinemaidens aren’t usually mermaid women, but they’re relatives,and they can be!
