Hello, my name is Liudmila. I was born in Lithuania, have family roots in Russia, but now I live in Norway:) I can't tell anything astonishing about myself... I'm not registered in the Guinness Book of Records, haven't invented the bicycle and wasn't elected as a president :D I'm an ordirary person with simple hobbies - love travelling, reading books, meeting my friends, I just love life as it is, with all advantages and disadvantages. I just have an interesting hobby - I collect bookmarks :) I'm a passionate bookmark collector and hope to find more collectors, exchange bookmarks with them, show my collection to others and have a look at other collections :) You can contact me, if you're interested in bookmark exchange :) Hope to find friends from all over the world :)

Collection of Islamic Art. From Nieuwe Kerk (Amsterdam).

Carpets of this size were mostly manufactured for export to Europe. A case in point is the fresco depicting Henry VIII by Hans Holbein, executed for the Palace of Westminster in 1535, the cartoon of which shows him standing on such a ‘star Ushak’ carpet.

Thanks, Jurate ;)
