Roma street musician

14th Century Roma-made iron caltrop (weapon)

Anna Magnani (I think)

Repetto “Gitane” (gypsy) Mary Jane Pump

Iron Kettle ca. 1830

Tyrolean Woman

Rousseau’s The Sleeping Gypsy, interpreted by Gary Peterson

The “Gitane” mary janes from Repetto with an offset spout heel that just kills me.  If you’re sensing a theme, you’re not imagining it; gitane translates to gypsy although Nice Girls, when referring to the Roma and Romani people, would never use that word.
