The Best Exotic Azeri Shaddah Weaving

(Title inspired by

the Hollywood film Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)

So after rummaging through the internet for Shaddahs or Shaddas, I have come to appreciate mine even more than ever.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 1389-Verneh-Sileh-Soumac-Flatweave-Antique-Azeri-Shaddah-Shadda-01-1024x704.jpg

 

Just look at the horde of camels lying on my floor inching their way to my table & heart!

They think that just because they’re blue & yellow or have brought their baby camels with them I’ll make place for them in my overcrowded heart!

Well it turns out they were right.

This piece fills up my heart and makes me sooo so happy to have it around.

Someone asked at a dinner party once – what would it take for me to agree to part with the pieces I hold close to my heart…

I still don’t have the answer … maybe a heavenly boon or two in exchange for these?

Maybe a dozen or more additional children?

Maybe some superpowers like being able to be in 4 places at the same time?

For, only such concepts would be fair exchange for the value I place on these works of art and for the power that they hold within them to deliver sublime joy to their beholders.

Nothing less would be a fair exchange right?

❤️

    I love this shaddah, and what I love even more is the lyrical way you write (rhapsodize) about it. Thank you for making me smile this morning!
