Each Hand-woven Wall-hanging Tells a Story

The large wall-hanging pictured above was designed by a Kuwaiti artist and hand-woven in Tunisia.  This tapestry depicts Arab culture with the waves representing the sea which borders the region.  The central panel incorporates Arabic poetry.  It measures 8 meters high  by 10 meters wide and is comprised of 3 pieces.  The hanging also serves a dual purpose as a decorative accent and an acoustic aid for the auditorium. Click here for a closer view of the poetry panel.
