Koran Stands #JDP

I saw these Koran stands in a stationary store here in Jeddah.  I've seen them before but not such a wonderful selection of them.  They come in a variety of sizes. The taller floor stands above are very similar to the music stands I remember using when I was in the band in high school.  They also are adjustable to higher or lower heights.

The shorter Koran stands are used while sitting on the floor or can also be used for reading at a table.  The small carved wooden stands in the middle photo can be folded up flat.  Some stands are quite plain and others are decorated with Arabic script from the Koran or other Middle Eastern designs.

...and once the Koran is placed on the stand all of the beautiful details disappears.

The designed ones are beautiful.

It makes sense that they'd have something like that.

That's great to have such a vast selection. I'm a simple girl but some of the artwork on them are gorgeous.

Your link at 'My Corner of the World' is greatly appreciated!! I'm glad to see you this week!
