    Default Carpets of sawdust

    As I know how much you like the photos in the forum and I also love tp see its gardens, its flowers some of which I do not know, the birds that do not live in my country etc, and while returning star lover, I would like to show some customs Spanish where art is amazing and also is ephemeral art because it hardly lasts a day. Most of these celebrations are related to religion, but usually all the people participate. Today I want to show some of the carpets of sawdust "serrin" dyed from the village "Elche de la Sierra" in the province of Albacete. The day of Corpus Christi is celebrated and the neighbors begin at 4 or 5 in the morningt so that in the morning it is all over, then people visit it and in the afternoon the religious procession is celebrated and those carpets disappear trodden by people and only the memori and the photos remain. Some other villages make carpets of flowers and I will show them too. Hope you likeClick image for larger version.

    Very beautiful. Thank you.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    At my husbands office, they had a small version of this done in dyed rice. It was only 4x4, but I'm sure it took hours to accomplish!

    They really are cool.

    Wow. This is amazing, strikingly beautiful. I wouldn't want to be the first person to walk on it, or even walk on it. All that work and gone in a day. This makes me want to visit even more. Keep sharing. Thanks

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    These are beautiful. What incredible artistry! How do they manage to repeat such large scale patterns?
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?
