|Re: What were the shops like where the treasured ancient beads of today were produced? -- art||Post Reply||Edit||Forum||Where am I?|
Or were they solo affairs in dark corners with one obsessed maniac working?
Were the beads originally made for specific buyers?
Or did the makers show up at local bazaars with their wares?
NO - definitely not the maker/s!
Were the makers conscripts?
Haaaa! Doubt it, Artur!
Or were they well regarded by their patrons?
Was their work generational?
Yes (if you mean grandfather to father to son
Did the makers typically have short lives, given industrial conditions at a primitive level?
All answers based on what I consider (my) logic! Not based on knowledge, except for the first one!
It must also be considered, or asked, "beadmakers where?" Bet there have been regional differences!
