("Light of Roses")

The descriptions and contemplation of Fürst Pückler come n ear to the own desert experiences of the artist Sigrid Noack.

All text extracts are the own words of Pückler which Sigrid Noack is following in sequences of his remarks. The desert as the very determining picture lends this book its face. The colours of the desert are the end-paper and the pages of the text are of hand-made natural paper (Lokta) from the daphne bush.

The Sahara sand is used for the artistic design of the collages and gouaches as assemblages in the end.

The sandrose in the cover represents a metaphor for moulding power of the wind, the nature and beauty of Oriental ornament. The Egyptian sign Anch stands for life and was once taken from the knots of sandal straps.
