Over the past thirty years hand grenades, tanks, fighter jets, missiles, helicopters, and assault rifles have replaced traditional floral patterns in rug making and other textiles. Depicting these realities of war has helped the Afghan people to survive during times of conflict.

come and go the new there should be a window through which we come and go as we please without opening a vein.

The silence holds with its gloved hand the wild hawk of the mind.

We are the children of this beautiful planet. We were not delivered into it by some god, but have come forth from it. We are its eyes and mind, its seeing and its thinking. And the earth, together with its sun, came forth, we are told, from a nebula; and that nebula, in turn, from space. No wonder, then, if its laws and our laws are the same. Likewise our depths are the depths of space. ... We can no longer hold our loves at home and project our aggressions elsewhere; for on this spaceship Earth there is no 'elsewhere' any more. And no mythology that continues to speak or teach of 'elsewheres' and 'outsiders' meets the requirements of this hour.
