    Great shot ! Is your picture by accident symmetrically rotated or are they all left handed (like many artists ! ;-)
  • That’s a very interesting question- the image is not rotated, and I would’ve expected that Muslims would use their right hands to drink with. A curious observation indeed – and thanks for the kind comment.
