"Musht" "Barakat el Haside"

Blessing of the Harvest - a comb (in Arabic) This is the Palestinian version of the corn dolly. Made from wheat, with all heads turned down and out. According to a story from Daburia - a village in the Galilee -this is meant to symbolize all swords going out and Peace at home ("שלום בית") The tradition of weaving them has almost completely dissapeared. I was lucky to find a Druze family to learn from and now I renew the tradition, teaching it around. $ 12
