This is a hip scarf my friend bought me when she traveled to Jordan. This is a traditional scarf worn by Middle Eastern women, typically dancers. If you look at the fine details in this scarf you would notice that two cultures are being represented. The small silver coins that hang from this scarf actually have a picture of a gladiator on each one. These gladiator coins are very similar to coins used for trade in the ancient Roman times.
The bedding and pillows are rich in color with detailed designs. This kind of style exemplifies indian culture. You will see these designs and detailed beading on pillows in India- also, the colors choices are vibrant suggesting youth.
This tapestry has a strong cultural element presented. It is within in the realms of Indian design. The indicators of this is the small, intricate patterns. The patterns resemble those to Henna tattoos.
I chose to use the hood over my stove, where it meets the Baroque Culture with all the different types of designs in the molding and such. It has a lot of lines creating different looking designs and is symmetrical on both sides so both sides are even. This design gives off a very antique type look and as i mentioned goes back to this culture where it reminds me of the Renaissance meeting the Baroque culture.
This rug is an oriental rug found in my living room, and can be classified as such because of where they are most often made. Authentic oriental rugs are made by a production of groups and even countries in single or different parts of Asia. Although my family is not of oriental descent, ownership of this rug demonstrates an intertwining of cultures in my household.
