Those of you who are interested in Sufism will find the use to which the Tailor has put this image at A Tailor’s Doctrine.

It may be the finest thing I’ve read about the situation in Egypt…

Thanks to you for the fabric ðŸ™‚

I do wonder if the circle is also a spiral, leading perhaps to “progress” of some sort … or to just an unending series of masks?

I’d originally named the two images “squaring the circle” and “circling the square” and only later changed the latter to “circling the cube” — at which point it took on an added, vertical dimension — which I think the Tailor picks up on in his own way in the piece he and I both linked to.

I’d say, too, that your “masks” correspond pretty well to his “problem with lifting of hijabs” — every revelatory and inspirational moment tends to crystallize, so that further inspiration and inspiration yet again is required — if we are to proceed to new heights, rather than going round in circles with no upward dimension.

Perhaps so. My (very) limited knowledge of Sufism leads me to be suspect of *social* progress within that paradigm.
