Myrrh Harvest

Today's blog photo depicts a Somalian worker collecting myrrh resin in the traditional fashion.

This photo dates from the 1970s and is published here courtesy of the Somalia Ministry of Information and National Guidance.

"Who is this coming up from the wilderness
Like palm-trees of smoke,
Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense,
From every powder of the merchant?"

"Till the day doth break forth,
And the shadows have fled away,
I will get me unto the mountain of myrrh,
And unto the hill of frankincense."
- Song of Solomon
