Description
In the early days of Islam, when the Ommayad dynasty ruled in splendor from their capital at Damascus, this simple lamp brought light to the evening darkness. Whose hands once held it as they passed from room to room? We cannot know, but when we grip its handle and place our fingers where theirs once rested, we are transported magically back into the glow of that Golden Age. - (PF.1100)
