This will be my last blog post for 2013 as I prepare to take some time off over the up-coming holidays towards the end of the year. I hope to get back to writing blog posts again towards the end of January. My thanks to everyone who reads http://brightlycolouredsunflowers.blogspot.com/ I hope you will continue to visit my blog and find something which interests you.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Here are a selection of beautiful and ornate wooden doors from Sidi Bou Said.
|Notice how the blue and white tiles and the black and white chequered arch really make this door stand out.|
|It is the effective use of Tunisian tiles that are on either side of this relatively plain wooden door which add a certain charm.|
|Notice the hand of Fatma sign right in the middle of this door. As I pointed out in previous posts, when this symbol is used on doors it is to protect house and the people living inside.|
You may like to refer back to an earlier blog post from 6 December 2010 to refresh your memory about the significance of the different symbols and the colours of Tunisian doors http://brightlycolouredsunflowers.blogspot.com/2010/12/it-was-cold-crisp-morning-sky-was-blue.html .
