Kalidaar representing mastery of handloom cotton weaving

Handloom connects heart, head, hands, eyes and feet. Of the ones who weave and the one who observes the weavers at work. Observing the weaver making weaves is a spiritual experience. It is time binding and heart settling. An ode to weavers who settle heart and open mind.
