Don’t stir up the Wind’s Bride

Die Windsbraut

This photo comes from my archives, and is of a sculpture in Flensburg called Die Windsbraut. Literally, that’s “the wind’s bride”, but it’s also sometimes translated as “the tempest”, as Windsbraut is also the name of a type of whirlwind, and/or the elemental spirit of said whirlwind. If you use the term poetically, can also mean a female of a wild, stormy temperament.
