Lines of Symphony – Textile Art

April 02, 2015 1 min read

“My soul is a hidden orchestra; I know not what instruments, what fiddlestrings and harps, drums and tamboura I sound and clash inside myself. All I hear is the symphony.”
― Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

A Symphony may also be seen in the clash between straight lines & curved lines in the central medallions of Swat Hazara Shawls.
