My findings from my 5 day trip to Oman.....
|love these silver swing bags|
|silver head dress|
|decorative dome. This was taken from underneath a domed roof covering a seating area along the sea front|
|shell inlay boxes|
|embroidered Omani men's hats called 'kuma' The men wear these|
|Omani men's silver daggers called kanjar - worn on special occassions.|
|I came across this amazing piece made of stones. Apparently it was worn by camel riders over their shoulders as a type of armour. I couldn't think of anything worse to wear in a dessert situation|
|crumbling wall in an alley way|
|there was a contemporary exhibition of decorated animals. This one stood out against all the white washed walls and stark desert scenery|
|photo of a photo in the Bait Muzna Gallery. I find the face masks fascinating|
|photo from a photo in Bait Muzna Gallery. It's quite rare to see women still dressed like this - and even rarer to get a photo as it's considered impolite|
|arch with handcuffs|
|a selection of abaya's - the Omani women's traditional dress|
|the henna dries and flakes off to reveal the stained skin|
