I appear as a Cariatide and stand still for an hour holding a Russian izba of a pink color over my shoulders. Cariatide is a mythical woman and also a figure that holds architectural part of the building.

My cariatide is, however, that kind of woman that not only carries some cultural burdens - meaning ones of social life, where a lot is being demanded from out contemporary woman - but is also responsible for the house and, consequently, household living in it.V
