Roundabouts of Al Ain #17

Mandoos Roundabout

A mandoos is a traditional chest that was used to store valuables. This roundabout has a very large replica, with pearls (harking back to the pearl diving industry that was so important in the Emirates).





I had never really noticed the tile replica of the carpet under the mandoos (again, the decay evident in so many of the roundabouts is here too).



Also decaying are the "pearls".
