Doesn't this look like some kind of Arabian work of art? It is actually the curtain at the Fox Theater. I go there quite a bit since I have season tickets. I stayed behind to wait for the crowd to leave so I could get this shot. I couldn't really find much history about this curtain but the whole theater has an Egyptian/Arabian theme. The curtain is a beautiful tapestry with quite a bit of detail - you can't tell it in this photo - but it actually sparkles. I assume it has gemstones sewn in.
I strongly encourage you to click on this picture - you will get a larger version of it - you can see all the marvelous detal and the sparkles in it then!
