Thanks here some picture of our unique tradion from Badakhshon. http://xiwoor.piczo.com/musuem?cr=3&vsrc=preview&linkvar=000044 The art that existed for centuries is commendable and it depicts the aesthetic flavour and artistic sense that continued for generations. But the question for us is that how much do we preserve it. I have a fear that in the wake of building so called modern houses, we are loosing sight of this heritage. Now the trend is such that nobody is ready to learn this skill because at the demand end people are simply behind cemented houses. This skill is actually endagered and needs proper attention.
