The photos are of the "War Memorial" for the Durham Light Infantrymen. It is a beautifully carved monolith with a celtic cross.

The hangings are made by the tentmakers in Cairo. Most are men who are working to support their families. The work is exquisite, the applique finely stitched and embroidered. The prices were heartbreaking, ranging from around £50 to one or two at £350. I was very happy to hear that the University bought one very large hanging for their Oriental Museum. There are more photos in my flickr album the prices of the pieces is included within the titles.

This why there are 7 black and white birds in my little tableau.
I found the pattern here
