Folk art is considered the link between modernity and heritage and it is one of the means of finding values that Man has formulated throughout history. It can also be a way of identifying the characteristics of each community as well as being a tool of expressing humans’ feelings towards love, beauty and welfare. In addition, Folk art is associated with pure thoughts and conscience of people as it expresses the cultural identity that has been accumulating throughout the years. The researcher presents some works of art that speak for themselves and demonstrate the concept of being a message of friendship, love and peace. The handicrafts presented in this paper are models made of clay and ceramics mingled with a combination of natural and synthetic leather, colored beads, and wood. In addition to using various techniques that show the beauty of such materials that are put together in an artistic way that reflects the Egyptian identity and would need no specific language to explain. Folk handicrafts are, therefore, the optimum example for non-verbal communication as they are the link between the old and the new, and they give an insight into the characteristic features of every society.
