Gypsies couples 2006 VS 2008

The photo below shows my 2006 gypsy couple and below it my brand new 2008 version which was inspired by the old one. The new one is different, the male is not tired and old, he is strong and quite large, the female is browner and more ethnic with dreadlocks as hair. The eyes of the new were based on the eyes of the girl in the older version. Both speak about travel and freedom but the new one indicates unity of the sexes or at least unity in the form of a couple because the figures and touching, yet it indicates independence of the female just as the old one did since she is facing away from her "man" independent free women, that's the butterfly people!
