Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
Coin purses from the olden days ….
When the coins were small & made of gold & silver and their value was huge!
When there was no fiat money or fiduciary money that was unbacked by gold
When the money and the gold itself were one!
But the good old days are gone…
We must now make do with paper money that is not even a promisory note backed by gold.
And we must make do with bags made by Prada and Gucci & such…
And I was told that WE are the evolved ones compared to our ancestors!!
