Bendis, the goddess of the moon, of the woods, and of the family is one of our oldest pagan gods. Inspired by our beautiful Romanian folklore and mythology – this beautiful shirt, with its long sleeves, was worn by high priestesses. The line crossing the sleeves, when these were rolled up, formed the ancient spiral of eternity. Midwives in the countryside wear this kind of shirt when they help deliver a child into this world. The W shape of the priestess is found on some of the oldest artifacts discovered in Romania, much later having been found in Greece. The Greeks and even the Romans seem to have borrowed some of our deities and traditions, evidence showing that our territory was the melting pot of a very old and prosperous, spiritually and materialistically speaking, ancient civilization.
