Unrevealed, Site 1 (Trees and Shelter), 2007. Many graves and ancient desert trees line the path that leads to a great saint's marker. Shelters have been built so pilgrims may spend the night, as a journey to a mazar is far for many. The shelter also offers respite from the high heat of the day and can be used as a place to have small meals.
Wouldn't this be great for a runner down the wedding aisle or cute indoor outdoor carpet? Take a plastic lace tablecloth and spray paint it on lengths of colored fabric or burlap. Repeat for the length of the runner.
Unrevealed, Site 3 (Harvest Prayers), Markers for Sufi saints in the desert are maintained by shaykhs, who dig out the sands that would otherwise cover them over time. The number of flags on a marker correlates to a saint's power at performing miracles.
