"If you can read this, you're looking too hard."
Or "You must have a sad and lonely life."
What a wonderful thing. Magic in the world, indeed.
Indeed. I had to share it!
If you can photograph the letters, I can try to read and translate for you.
I'm so confused. All I see is light shining brightly thru the fabric over the window. But it does look like the light comes through in the shape of a body, without the head. (Legs on the left, torso to the right of them?) Like the Shroud of Turin.
I'd love to see it without the light on it, to see the embroidery. And is it a madras plaid looking fabric?
Nono. What's over the window there is just a sheet, from before us updating anything. The wall hanging in question is to the left.
I've now edited this entry to include a picture of it so you can see the letters.
Don't find out!
Leave it a mystery.
(Since it's probably some advertising something fabric they had lying around they just tossed in the middle.)
The weird part is that it doesn't feel like there is a third layer.

Rotating the picture about a bit, I'm pretty sure the middle row has the word "Sunday." That's all I can make out.
I think it's Sunder, but it's hard to tell.
Interesting. I wonder if maybe it was used as a window hanging before you bought it, and what you are seeing is some sun fading. Or maybe the original fabric had some text on it, and it was dyed blue?
This is so cool!
I'm inclined toward the latter theory. It is pretty cool, though!
OH! It's so AWESOME! I would scooped that up in a second.
And with the exchange rate? It was only $15 US.
it's upside down, take your picture and open any photo editor and max the contrast still not totally legible though
Well, of course it's upside down - that's part of the mystery! And you can't see all the letters because some of them are in shadow. I have managed to make out the word "Connection" in the bottom row, though.
I'm thinking flour sack. Or grain sack of some sort. And a pox on screaming young'ins ( that are outside my window)
Probably, but it was fun to discover.
Looks like English to me. The word in the middle is Sunday upside-down.
Not a "y" on the end. But it is English - I made out "Connection" in the larger print.
I think you are right about 59 Sunder Nager. Interesting!
Looks like upside down English to me, but if it is Hebrew the next time I'm over I can take a closer look and try to dope it out.
No, it's English after all.
One downside of leaving it up; it will probably fade. My mom did this with a quilt her Nana made ( too thick for light to make it through) and the side that hung outward (it was about double-height of the window) went from purple to lavender-gray.
I don't care about the back fading, so it's okay.
oh that's pretty! What were you doing in Israel?
I was there for a seminar when I was in law school. I loved it and want to go back again.
