Eastern Spice

Sweltering heat, sun baked earth and sand, sporatic plam trees peppering the landscape.... you can almost taste dried dates and fresh figs. The coffee is strong and sweet, in the markets the smell of spice is hangs thick in the air.

When the sun dies down and night sky blankets the horizon, the music raises up and the celebrations begin. It's here in the images set forth on this hand painted bangle, which has been created in a style reminiscent of the old world tapestries.
