SynopsisThe exhibition invites visitors to explore the Emirati burqa on a substantial level that is hidden from the naked eye. It is a dialogue between visual arts and significant heritage symbols, where the burqa is a visual text that authors the silent face`s memoir. It allows the onlookers a unique access to a world that highlights the daily life and rituals of the burqa owner. It contains a detailed dark text on a lively blank surface, confronting the eyes that directly reflect the human soul. It displays the beliefs associated with the practice of burqa wearing and its rituals, especially the ones used in the past, which some of them remain as they were, with the addition of modern adjustments.
