"Footprints in Sand"
"Footprints in Sand" is a portrayal of the cultural icons and milestones in the wonderful journey of the development of UAE. Here, cultural symbols, that made this nation, are represented in papercut design mixed in water colour.
Icon : قيادة (Leadership, Guidance) UAE as a nation has grown leaps and bounds with the great leadership and the path that the earlier and present leaders have paved. The rich heritage and culture of the country were upheld along with the economic development reaped over the years. Through this artwork قيادة is represented through Pearl Fishery, a key element of the country's heritage, where the pioneering leadership of the captain helped the industry become a strong force of UAE's development. Pearl divers(Ghaus) explored the depths of the sea and brought the treasures which were sorted and traded under the watchful guidance and leadership of the captain(Nukhada). Pearling was more a part of life and culture of UAE rather than just a trade. It has become an essential part of the heritage of the country
