The Hidden Bride

There was once this bride who was kept hidden in a faraway place, locked up somewhere far in the deep mountains. The bride spent her life isolated with little else to do but abide to Mother Nature. Obediently, she laid fascinated in those deep cliffs, observing the world, the beautiful sky and nature that surrounded her, the peasants as years passed by and they lived and went about their lives.
She was a myth, a legend. The myths and the legends all mentioned her name. Peasants knew that there was this hidden bride, searched high and far, but never knew her secret place. As years went by, men gave up searching for their hidden bride and accepted that she’d had second thoughts and went on with her life so they did the same.
Little did they know that she will keep holding on never giving up, wishing upon shooting stars as she waited and waited never giving up hope that one day someone will know about her secret place and fall in love with her…longing for the day when her life begins.
The bride waited and waited, day after day, determined that one day she will be found, until decades later he found her. He knew her hidden place and finally rescued her.
Everyone told him that it was a hopeless search. And still, he waited until the covered snow melted. Spring came, he stood there, many hours passed observing as he faced the beautiful mountain, and still… couldn’t find her…
Mesmerized by the moment, the beauty of the mountain, he took photos. Not seeing his bride at first, back home he looked back at the photos. And there she was, inside a proud mountain she was engraved, lying gracefully… Unique in its form, a vague image still, he went to his friend the artist and asked him to trace her path.
Doctor Lteif finally unlocked her hidden secret, the rumored legendary engraved by the hand of God, some 250 million years back. It was there where he stood, it was his lens that helped him find his beautiful bride.
They both never once gave up hope despite the circumstances, they refused to despair.…
I am here, I am living, I am free…  For like the first time ever, I’m completely free!

The Story of The Mongolian Nomads and Their Tents

Nomads, the existing tribes at that time, used to travel from place to place in search of food and water for survival. They had no permanent homes, they lived in tents.
Tents was their major possession. They were made of goat hair with curtains to divide the tent into two parts (male and female sides) and carpets for the floor. Rugs and carpets became essential in their lives as they served the purpose of rough Nomadic life. Their tents were thickly knotted to protect them from harsh climates and the rugs so they don’t have direct contact with the ground.
Armenians where the first to weave carpets, and eventually became an artisan-ship for the Mongolian Nomads to follow in their daily lives to build their tents. They maintained the culture and eventually, it became a trade between East and South of China. It is from there where the world followed. It later evolved into artistic pieces.
