The other day, I had an epiphany. Staring at some designs, I realized that the patterns that are in paisleys look like the leafs of lauburus — the traditional Basque “four-headed” symbol that decorates ancient headstones and now is the de facto symbol of the Basques, appearing everywhere.
So, I had to play a bit and make some lauburus from some online paisley patterns.
When I told my wife about my epiphany, she gave me a look that said “Duh!” and said something to the effect of “You just now realized that?”
Just because I had an epiphany doesn’t mean others haven’t had it thousands of times already…
