Alep

When I bought this tapestry, years ago, I’ve been told that it was an Alep kelim. For a long time I was sure that I will one day visit Alep after retirement, and see others kelims like this one. I know now I will never go to Alep, which no longer exists.

The beauty of the tapestry remains, thanks to an unknown human (woman?) who expressed his/her soul in it.

J’ai longtemps rêvé de visiter Alep, à cause de ce kilim qui y aurait été fabriqué. Cela n’arrivera pas, Alep n’existe plus. Reste le travail de la tisserande.

You see the bue well preserved on the back

One thought on “Alep

  1. Bravo Ghislaine, la lente naissance d’Alice et Anita est très émouvante, les doutes de leur créatrice aussi. Quel joli partage, merci
