So what's the story with tea baskets?
It is typical in a Berber household of the Atlas villages for men to go out to the fields tending sheep or farm. So what would you do if you have to bring them a cuppa? You make a basket!! That's right! One that can hold the glasses and teapot and also some snacks! However, if you don't have any tea to take to the fields they are perfect as fruit or bread basket, to hold your knitting wool and all that bits and bobs!!
Lions, flying lizards, flying horses, chickens...
...what's all that about?
Although Christianity is the dominant religion of the Sumbanese,many combine their faith with animise practice. They believe a person is able to acquire the spiritual powers and qualities of certain creatures when textiles displaying such motifs are worn.
