  1. I thought the bottle holder was a slice of one of those heavy portable blankets (that they do not make as heavy as they used to)
    and nice variety – even the idyllic door with snow and stairs and two lights had such charm

    1. Yes, that bottle holder is a typical colorful pattern that is used in all types of woven goods sold in Peru and many other countries with indigenous populations! I love its brightness. Thank you for your kind comments.

  2. A wonderfully varied gallery of stripes and checks! Love it that there’s a vaccuumcleaner in the mosque… The Aswan tables are indeed beautifully crafted, and the bottle trees was the first time seen for me! Brilliant.

    1. Haha! I hadn’t noticed the vacuum cleaner! Well, I guess they have to vacuum between prayer sessions! It’s a good thing people have to take their shoes off at the entrance to the mosque!
