Icelandic woman wearing an outfit described as follows:
On celebration days, their dress is adorned with silver embroidery and velvet stripes. Their sheepskin shoes are decorated with bows and they wear a silver belt and a corset enriched with silver braids. Their neck is adorned with a silk tie and an embroidered velvet collar. On those days, they cover their hair and wrap their head in a piece of silk, from the top of which a thick band of fabric rises and curls forward.
The caption reads in the original French:
