A Colourful Past from Ancient Persia

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Past Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/10/16/past-squares-16/

In 2016, when my son came to visit us from London we took a trip to the Aga Khan Museum in the east end of Toronto. There were lots of beautiful Persian artifacts and many of them were circular so this post features two themes from past squares.
