NIGHT 61 – THE STORY OF KING UMAR ‘IBN AL-NUMAN AND HIS FAMILY

A home for the dome. It’s going in here, in the ceiling of this opium bed. Entirely appropriate for a dome inspired by a poem induced by opium dreams – please note, no opium was consumed during the making of my dome! It’s equally inspired by the revolving rooms of the Sasanian kings – my dome revolves too.

At the bottom you see a glimpse of an antique opium bed part my amazing husband found in a scrapyard. He restored it, re-gilded it and recreated it in wood and leather. Our labour of love ~
