    I’ve actually been through the markets of Samarkand and the funny thing is that while the guys still look much like the man pictured from 1911, in additon to tradtional rugs they also carry their fair share of mass produced tiger, unicorn, and wolf rugs…

    Nice juxtaposition.

    I’ve been fascinated by Gorskii’s work for a long time. It’s amazing to see scenes from the early 1900’s in color.
