Description - Devotions: Wisdom from the Cradle of Civilization by Olivier Follmi
"Devotions: Wisdom from the Cradle of Civilisation" is the sixth instalment in Danielle and Olivier Follmi's project Offerings for Humanity, which spans the world's cultures and traditions. In this new volume, the authors have travelled to the Middle East and captured images from Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen, United Aran Emirates, Jordon, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan and many other places. Each photograph is accompanied by a quote for each day of the year. "Devotions" presents not only religious quotes taken from the Koran, the Hebraic tradition and Eastern Christianity, but also from noted authors such as the Sufi poet and jurist Rumi, the Persian writer and mathematician Omar Khayyam and the Lebanese-American Artist Khalil Gibran. A daily dose of wisdom coupled with breathtaking photography, "Devotions" allows the reader to move a little closer to the heart of the wisdom found in the Cradle of Civilisation.
