"This is a remarkably beautiful shot. It personalises the happiness within an Arab household where the mum gently weaves while the young daughters playfully watch. The house is decorated with arabic-style ornaments while one can see the bold and traditional prints on the attires of the young girls." - Rumaisa

Photo: Arab thread
Photographer: Marc Anthony Agtay
Location: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
"This image contains plenty of detail of Arab culture. The central action of threading and stitching is very known in the Arab world and appreciated throughout the globe. The pillows have beautiful embroidery reminding us of the bedouin style. Also the woman working in traditional clothing has touches of bright henna/mehndi on her hands." - Lilia
Photo: Pottery and ceramics
Photographer: Ilies Guebbal
"This shot is almost magical. You see a man being enlightened by the natural rays of the sun while he stays in a room with his pottery work. The artistic detail of this photo steals the show." - Rumaisa
