pic-a-day: something old

Wednesday, May 23:  Al Sandouq are wooden chests, ornately decorated with carvings and brass, which served a multitude of purposes. Chests in Oman can be dated back to the 16th century, and the different styles reflect the Sultanate’s rich seafaring heritage, with influences from Persia, Asia and Africa. Chests in Oman are a very important part of the home, and were generally given, full of treasures, to girls getting married as a bridal gift. (Pic-A-Day Challenge: May)
