A cat in the manger

A cat in the manger
Many years ago women had to put on corsets, which were like bird coops, hoop skirts, lacy collars, make luxuriant hair-dos in order to look beautiful… If we also remember that there were also veils, huge hats, fans, gloves, palanquins and heavy curtains everything becomes clear: every attempt was made to "wrap" a woman, so that not an inch off her body could be seen. Still, as we can see from the life story of Don Juan, seeing a silhouette was quite enough to fall in love – passionately and desperately.

But it’s not the point. This poster proves that these two gracious creations – women and cats – have much in common.
