Janadriyah: Basket Maker

Artisans of the old arts and trades are featured at Janadriyah, the yearly celebration of culture and heritage held in Riyadh.  These arts are dying here in Saudi Arabia.  I published a post on my other blog with a slideshow of photos from this year's event, which was held in April.  CLICK HERE to see it.

I am assuming the baskets to the side, very beautiful ones I may add, are his.

Yes, Jerry, they are. Pretty amazing workmanship. I always wanted to learn basket-weaving!
