veils



A post about veils. I don't really know anything about the website that inspired this post, but last year I was really interested in veils throughout culture and history beyond their religious use. The juxtaposition between the hidden and the displayed, public and private, and precious versus plebian makes the veil a powerful tool, if you ask me.
