Enormous what a work this is. If I only see how the hands are working around the carpet. You say it is a carpet school. This makes it to me more beautiful that they learn a profession and not being employed for only for profits.

Artist Reply: I really appreciate your comment, and I fully agree with your observation about learning a skill so that they can become competent artisans. I was impressed with the school and the way they treated the students. Take care.
