Baghdad Silversmith



Today's picture shows a silversmith working on the street in Baghdad, Iraq. The picture was taken in 1932 by a photographer with the American Colony in Jerusalem. I love the look of careful attention on the man's face. I wish we could see the details of his work better.

  1. Wouldn't it be fascinating to bring together the Navajo, this Iraqi silversmith, the Cartiers and other jewelry making cultures and see the results!
