Museum of National Applied Art, Sheki, Azerbaijan | Walter Callens

A late-19th-century Russian church in unusual cylindrical form, built on the site of a 6th-century Caucasian Albanian original now hosts the Museum of National Applied Art. It displays fairly haphazard collections of Sheki crafts, including metalwork, pottery, and embroidery.

You feel the heat rising from your loins to your chest. The feeling of lust and yearning. You want to know how her skin feels like. You want to feel her against you, skin to skin contact. You know it’s wrong but you groan for her. You moan her name every night. Just for a feeling of her lips could make your life complete.
—  “Forbidden Touch” Sheky Kennedy
