Lamp...

In every house in Sheki there is a lamp like the one on this picture. This is an oil lamp that is used if the lights go off. Our grandmothers left them to us. During our wedding ceremonies there is always someone that walks in front of the/next to the bride and carries a lamp or candles as the symbol of light that bride would bring to her new family and home…

I like the shape of these lamps and touch of history that they carry…and even if we don’t have to use them (thankfully) often now it is still nice to have one in the house.

Your blog on Sheki, it's history' peoples and customs, is what these blogs are all aboutl You have given me a great insight into Sheki in particular and Azerbaijan in geeneral. You are an excellent, literate writer and a good photographer. It has been a month since your last post; I hope you continue to post in the future!
