  • The residence of the chief of Dosso, Nigeria is an example of the indigenous Hausa Tribal Vernacular Architecture. The traditional architecture is an integral part of how it’s people construct a sense of interrelatedness with their physical environment. It consists of one to two story structures made of adobe. Privacy is paramount - homes are built inside a tall compound wall that provides privacy and security to its inhabitants. 
‘Aside from the entryway, openings on the street side are nonexistent or are very small in size and number. The architecture has a language of its own, and is rich in terms of structural innovation and expression (especially inside), and its expressive facades. The latter can be very intricate, highlighting the entrance and the wall surrounding it. These decorations were specially commissioned by the head of the household to convey a message, or by the desire to express a social, religious, economic or even political message to their community.’ - Atelier Masomi.

  • ‘Hazrat Nizamuddin did not have children but was deeply attached to his sister’s son, Khwaja Taqiuddin Nuh. But an illness took Khwaja Nuh away from this world, which immensely saddened the saint, who grieved over the loss for a long time. His followers, particularly Hazrat Amir Khusrau, longed to see him smile once again.One day, Khusrau saw a group of village women dressed in yellow, carrying mustard flowers and singing on the road near the Khwaja’s chilla-khanqah, a retreat where he had spent his life reaching out to people, which is located behind Humayun’s tomb. Khusrau asked the women where they were going dressed like this. The women replied that they were going to the temple to offer flowers to their god. Khusrau then asked them whether this would make their god happy. When they said it would, Khusrau immediately dressed up in a yellow saree, and carrying mustard flowers, went before the saint singing sakal ban phool rahi sarson. Recognising his favourite disciple and amused by his costume and song, the saint finally broke into a smile.

  • A decorated brooch, wrought in silver,  made in the Roman border province of Pannonia, on the Danube River in the year 100-200. These objects are called "wing brooches" because of the winglike extensions that flank the knob at the bend of the bow. - via @metmuseum
