This artwork represents the way some Palestinian children learn to accomplish things early on in their childhood. Wool spinning is one of the many traditional handicraft skills taught at a young age. Here you can see a young Palestinian girl using a traditional spindle wheel. The use of pink shades and an intricate pattern reflects a young girl’s active childhood.
