Postcards from Sicily: ancient crafts

Ancient arts from Sicily
Ancient arts from Sicily

 

I’m a bit of a postcard addict, always on the lookout for original or vintage images from wherever I am visiting.

I recently found this great series of cards depicting ancient arts from Sicily. Work that is no longer needed or has simply disappeared as the world has become ‘modern’.

It saddens me to think so many once thriving artisans have lost their craft through the ages.

A poignant thought.
