Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
In Afghanistan, decorations used as symbols of auspiciousness are made out of cloves!!
Who in my world would have thought of such a use for a clove or conversely when planning to make a decoration who would have thought of employing a clove!!!
If we were to list out all the possible materials ever used all over the world for decoration, we might find every single natural material on that list though no single culture is likely to do so. If collective ideation & aggregation were possible our world might look totally different!
Diversity is so delightful!!
