Rickshaw or Car? 

July 04, 2017

The wonders never cease in the world of textile art!

Am off on a new armchair exploration!

And will happily drag along anyone who will listen (or read) through the folk life of Canton of the 1800s & 1900s as viewed through  these stunning silk shawls with double-sided embroidery!

And how would you like to travel with me?

In the Rickshaw or in the Motorcar?

 

Either way, the ride will be delightful for it entails discovery and beauty and stories within stories…

Am living on another plane these past few weeks … high up there… elated … consumed and sleepless!

More to follow!
