Arabian Chotchke

I have seen many little religious chotchke type things like this, hanging from a car mirror, or hanging in people’s homes.  All of them have quotes from the Quran or something along those lines.  This one actually says “Allah.”

  3. Hi AbuDhabi/UAE Photo!
    I have taken several pictures of these types of religious dangly things that I see everywhere. They remind me of mini windchimes. I’ve seen many at the entrance of a home or hanging over a doorway or in the middle of a room or in the car on the rear view mirror. I didn’t know what else to call it, so I thought “Chotchke” fit!

  4. I did a chotchke post a few weeks ago, too. http://auhgal.blogspot.com/2008/08/chochke.html What you have here is rather tasteful. I’ve seen a lot of non-religious chotchke around the UAE…must visit the home stores and take photos.
