The Tabla Necklace

COURTESY Reem Rashed Musabeh Al Kendi Al Murar

Our family lived in Mina Zayed and traveled to Abu Dhabi to have this photo taken. This protective necklace was a gift when I was born. We used to write verses from the Quran and put the papers into the locket. I no longer have the locket, but fortunately still have this photo of it. The photo is beautifully colored by hand.
