Turkoman Morning Light

In memory of George O'Bannon. www.hajji75.org/OBannon Mem.html As a University of Pittsburgh professor, he sparked my interest, albeit passing, in oriental carpets. He was a master knowing all there was to know about such creative works. In 1975 through an exchange program, we visited Afghanistan during the golden years of the past century www.flickr.com/photos/karl_wolfgang/4473986181/in/set-721... , seeing it in with its ethnic wonders, before Soviet corruption and mujahadeen drug lord decay.

 

Here a typical Turkoman Bokhara carpet in the morning light.
