Cee’s FF Challenge: Sense of Touching

Here is my entry for this week’s Sense of Touching.

Egypt is filled with many handicrafts, and these are part of Egyptian cultural identity and heritage. We had a chance to visit the stone carving factory and carpet manufacture.

This week’s Lens Artists theme is At Home. Join us and share your photos and stories, and perhaps your yard/garden, pet, kids, collections, kitchen/cooking, and more. 🙂

  1. When we think of a factory we usually don’t think of workers sitting on the ground for hours chiseling stone. Beautiful work so thank you for sharing your photos.

      • What I wonder is what that comes to per hour. For instance, when Navajo woman weaves a rug, it can take her days and days or even months. If she sells it in a gallery, the gallery gets half generally of the money. It really isn’t a huge return on time even if it’s an expensive rug.

  2. A few years back Bob (my late husband) and I had gone to the Dominican Republic. We went to a Laramar “factory” to watch the locals making jewelry out of the beautiful stone. The factory was really only 3 or 4 people but they worked hard and were busy!
