On Wednesday, 11th May, 2011, HRH Princess Rajwa bint Ali opened a beautiful exhibition in the National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan, entitled "Dutch lace cap exhibition meets Jordanian and Palestinian embroidered caps and head covers" (for the official announcement of the exhibition, click here). The exhibition was set up by the TRC in cooperation with Mrs. Widad Kawar, under the auspices of the Netherlands Embassy in Amman. The opening was attended by some 200 guests. The exhibition includes seven fully dressed figures, and at least thirty lace and embroidered caps, showing a stunning contrast between the white lace and gold jewelry from Holland, and the multicoloured caps and silver jewelry from Jordan and Palestine. Many elements of the exhibition created a stir among the visitors, both Jordanian and foreign, looking at the way in which Dutch women used to cover their head and hair, and sometimes still do. Suddenly Western Europe and The Netherlands did not appear to be so strange and far away. For more information and some photographs, click here.
