Through googling I found out that they have produced mainly 5 types of women in past centuries in Friesland.

First of all, many skaters: Sjoukje Dijkstra, Atje Keulen-Deelstra, Maria Sterk, Elma de Vries and many others.
Furthermore, many writers: Nynke van Hichtum, Cissy van Marxveldt, Simke Kloosterman, Muoike Jant and others.
Also there are many singers such as: Nynke Laverman, Elske de Wall, Laura Vlasblom.
Models/muses there are also enough: Margaretha Geertruida Zelle/Mata Hari, Doutzen Kroes, Monique Sluyter, Anna Maria van Burmania (who was the muse of Havank).
And finally, the Frisians count the necessary tough women, manor - defenders politician in short protagonists: Anita Margaretha Andriesen, Ats Bonninga, Hillen Feicken, Mietje Rutgers-Hoitsema, Jeltje van Nieuwenhoven.

And so I have created 5 'examples' of Frisian Women.

Ceramic sculpture under a bell jar. Stoneware clay, fired at 1220°C, with glaze and gold luster fired at 750°C. At the bottom of the jar a small golden lining.

From the series Frisian Women
