Book mother of pearl craft

Contributed by Toine Van Teeffelen on 23.03.2008:

Karen David Daccarett, from the family Daued (Dawid) of Bethlehem, wrote a book in 2005 with Enrique Yidi (also from a Bethlehemite family) and Martha Lizcano (a Colombian friend, Ph.D. in History), with the title El arte palestino de tallar el nĂ¡car. The book is aimed at recovering an ancient Holy Land heritage. The text -a de luxe edition, illustrated with 190 pictures, most of them historical ones- narrates the history of the Palestinian art of mother-of-pearl carving since the Crusade time.
