The Conference of the Birds: From Serving the Guest: A Sufi Cookbook & Art Gallery
Conference of the Birds - "Katya took Rosa to hear nightingales . . . . Katya's breathing touched her as pine-needles did. All around the two women a kind of piercingly sweet ringing was on the limit of being audible. A new perception was picking up the utmost ring of waves whose center must be unreachable ecstasy. The thrilling of the darkness intensified without coming closer . . . ." - Nadine Gordimer, 'Burger's Daughter'

Persian Embroidery – A Study in Miniatures
Late Timurid period cloud collar. Possibly the only surviving Persian cloud collar. Very much altered from its original state. It was cut off a garment and in the 18th century the original red silk base fabric was entirely stitched over with a yellow thread onto a backing of Russian linen. This would suggest that some cloud collars were embroidered separately, then sewn onto garments.
