Caledoniyya

A Brief Visual History of Shoe-hurling

Here.

What I love most about the last image is less the bronze statue in homage to the custom, but the smiles of the Iraqis milling around the plinth.

It is lovely to see Iraqi smiles.

For too long we have seen sadness and death; though fleeting, these beams are beautiful nonetheless.
