I have been looking at decorative patterns from different cultures and I got interested in the beauty of the middle eastern design. I decided to do a genie in my style and add some elements of the patterns in the multilayered screen and the floor and wall. I took liberties with the patterns by combining different types and eras, I do hope that does not offend people who study cultures and histories. I am just taken with the beauty and feel of the culture. I think the movie A Little Princess really got me into this mood. The love of India that the little girl feels inspired me to do this.
