Lamsat Ummi Scarf
Arab American National Museum
Designed by Fayeq Owies
These beautiful scarves are designed by the artist who created the motif for our dome and outside of the museum. Each scarf was handmade by a woman in a Jordanian refugee camp.
Each Scarf has enscribed a different Mahmoud Darwish quote:
Black: The butterfly effect cannot be seen, the butterfly effect cannot vanish.
Purple: I swear: I will embroider a scarf from my eyelashes and engrave on it poetry for your eyes.
Beige: On this land, there is something worth living for.
