Do they only simulate it, or is he actually making something? Historic places here and there sometimes sell the fruits of their old-fashioned labor. Great picture!

Yes, he's actually making something which you can buy in the shop on the way out.

He reminds of the old-fashioned type gold-smith who used to work here, I wonder if they still exist in our rural areas.

It was my neighbour, one Eid dinner, who described how they worked.

Are there many artists who still use old fashioned methods? Lovely photo btw.

Hi BlossomFlowerGirl,

There's a lot of craftsmen employed at places like this but doubt you will find many outside - Shame!
