Mubarakiyya Glimpses and Public Art

Every time I go to Mubarakiyya, I see something I haven’t seen before. We found some scenes in the meat market – see if you can find them.

  3. Thanks, Jewaira!

    I do love Mubarakiyya, Amer. Think about it – look at those drawings. Somebody went to a lot of trouble to make a utilitarian space more beautiful.

    The top drawing – where do you see a woman sifting wheat or making bread on a mat anymore? Most people these days have never seen it. it fascinates me – that someone made a decision to add this extra art work to the souks, and there are so many varieties. . . the tile work on the floors, the tile paintings, the scenes, the decorative carpets – one of which spells out Mubarakiya, in the meat souk. It’s an amazing place.
