Beauty lies in the hands of the maker
October 18, 2015 9:49am CST
We have heard of the saying 'Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder' Here was a maker who created beauty, He was in tatters sitting on the roadside weaving away I stopped by and I could not take my eyes of what he had produced. He had used ordinary bamboo strips and created this wonder. I called it the goblet. It is about 6' in height. I just paid him whatever he asked for and it is now adorning our hall.

@allknowing what a shame, coz this fella's got a gift. no doubt there's many in yer country with such. here in the u.s., there's few who feel 'tis worth their time to craft such by hand. 'least in these parts. turnin' to machines to do their work, that loss 'f the touch'f ones hand, the feel 'n life they put into their wares lost.
