Day 03 “Dolman”

I was excited when I got this word and had prepared myself to copy a panel from Asterix and the Golden Sickle where a dolmen plays a vital part. That’s when I realised “dolmen” is spelt with an ‘e’ and the word I got…what on earth is a dolman?

Thanks to Wiktionary.org I got the following definition

Noun

dolman (plural dolmans)

  1. A long, loose garment with narrow sleeves and an opening in the front, generally worn by Turks
  2. A short, close-fitting, heavily braided military jacket, usually worn under a pelisse, originally by hussars.
  3. A woman’s garment with wide cape-like

An image search revealed a few different styles of garment which brought to mind The Beatles which brought to mind Asterix in Britain and the “Beatlesque” panel I decided to draw. Turns out dolmans aren’t that exciting and Asterix is always a winner.
