Iceland Magazine has a wonderful spread of historic photos of Icelandic women in traditional clothing. The photos are from the Daniel Bruun Collection at the Danish National Museum. (Warning: the museum site has a significant number of photos in its online collection—you may be there a while.)

This one looks a lot like a raven. Also, it’s quite effective for staying warm on windy days.
