Nabil Moussa: Artist? Craftsman?




hibo has discovered Ali Baba's cave...on the bbc site: a photo journal on a Libyan brass engraver, who bases his designs on Christie's antique price guide and hopes to expand through the internet.

Reminds me of the Art or Craft argument over Dale Chihuly's glass sculptures.

It's facinating. When I lived in Tripoli I was always impressed by the brass engravers in their Souk being in a state of concentration doing their art work. I sincerely hope that this Libyan art is not going to disappear.
