DALLAH MOTHER OF PEARLS

.

The Dallah is a traditional Arabic coffee pot used for centuries both to brew and serve Coffee. The Dallah has been used for by the Bedouins for coffee preparation and serving - a sign of hospitality, generosity and wealth. In much of the Middle East it is still used even today. Dallahs are typically richly ornamented, usually engraved with geometric patterns, stylized plants and flowers, love scenes from Arabic poetry or other decorations, including semi-precious gemstones and ivory.

This is part of a Signature 'Artistic Metal Panel', which is a 244 x 125 cm piece. I have used Mother of Pearls to 'contrucst the coffee pot (Dallah). Next stage would be to include precious gems and pearls in between the pearleascent shells.
