National Costumes, Romania

the next card shows some really nice Romanian traditional costumes from the late 19 century...but unfortunately, I couldnt really trace them down so any input would be highly appreciated :)



the lady's dress just feels odd to me...or probably it is the overall...but you know, when it comes to traditional costumes, Im used to seeing people either posing, or dancing...but these two are as if they are taking a walk in the park on an early Sunday morning...really, i just find it odd on the card :)


both stamps were issued in 2012 in a set of 4 stamps depicting the flora of Romania....the left stamp shows the Starflower, while the right one, the Alpine Forget-me-not.
