The basic umbrella or parasol was invented more than 4000 years ago, in ancient Egypt, Assyria, Greece and China. The umbrella was first designed to provide shade from the sun and the parasol usually protects from the rain.
Yet they have so many other purposes . Like for spiritual ceremonies.
Or for a wedding an over hundred year old , hand crafted sun umbrella by my grandmother.
Protecting us from the sun
or just used as a stick for save walking

Wonderful homage to the umbrella, Cornelia. As much as I love the colors, the couple walking with hers yet to be opened caught my heart.
