Great akh 2010-10-31 3:15

Dear Saeed,

Another great portrait of these lovely people.
Well composed with great details.
I have a question, is there anything special she put on the top of her stick.

Cheers from Iran

Azadeh

Hey Azadeh..nice to see you..no that is a prayer wheel i have shown it in an earlier post from the same place...the top portion revolves around the wooden handle and the the prayers inscribed on the surface of the metal give a gentle wind which they believe has a protective effect on them..so they carry it along all the time, mostly the older ones..

have a pleasant sunday dear
