Embellishment by hand

"Embellishment is recognized in many cultures as something that needs to be continually recreated, and is thus viewed as an opportunity  to renew one's surroundings as well as oneself. When the natural pigments are washed away with the rain, they are simply repainted without dread or regret, for its acknowledge that in the act of creating beauty, the creator - as well as the creation - becomes enhanced and therefore more beautiful. Consequently the process itself is valued as much, if not more, than the final product"

From the book Built by hand, Vernacular buildings around the world
