Title"Storks" size 16x20inch
Indian ink and sharpy pen on paper
An ink on paper drawing titled "Storks" showing a cople of storke hovering over their nest...and the nest is drawn of repeting text that says the "wonders of God" in Arabic.
Interesting to know that the storks migrates yearly from Russia to Iraq escaping the cold winter in Russia.
as a matter of a fact that it's been known that the Stork goes back to the same spot to rebiult his old nest and it is usualy located on the top of a Manerate (the Mosque tower) of some Mosque ,so in the winter in Iraq you can see a lot of Manerates with Storks hovering on top of them .
the Image is part of 28 pieces of Iraqi folk art series ,title of series is "Baghdadzim"
