UAE: Ethnicities – melting pot for knowing each other


Taqwa Alnaqbi‘s work reflects the sentiment that the Middle East region has been a melting pot for different cultures across ages. The blocks in the sculpture represent the cultures that have come to live together in harmony.The Arab society is based on openness and tolerance, symbolized by the Arabic calligraphy “وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا” which translates to “We have made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another.”
