Interesting to know how these "3rd World" artifacts or "traditional" pieces of signage, cloth, costume, furnishings, etc. suddenly become First-World design tropes, then disappear almost as soon as they've arrived. A similar bafflement: how it was that "Kantha-stitched" bedspreads, throws, pillows, etc suddenly appeared one day everywhere in upscale "lifestyle" catalogues like the Sundance Catalog. Who started this particular import/export fad? Mysterious East, etc. These Kantha textiles are often very beautiful.

"Three women" post of a few days ago got me thinking about threesomes--possibly the minimum number of actors needed to get a good narrative going? Family unit? Oedipus Complex? Love triangle? Mediated desire? Graces? Fates?
Tripods like to pretend they are stable, but they really aren't.

Like the way how on the side of the first unit on the left the differently- sized windows look a bit like eyes with droopy orange eyelids.
