In the slide-show you find examples of design for "sound" :
a) Elbow rings with stone inside (sound for dancing)
b) Anklets with stones inside (sound for dancing)
c) Coffee pot (sound to warn someone tempering with the coffee??)
d) Wooden Shoes with bells (sound to warn lady coming?)
c) Toe-rings with bells (sound for dancing or to warn lady coming?)
In the hot sweaty climate of Oman people pay a lot attention to smell. This includes of course the use of perfumes and of course burning Incense.
What people often do not realize is that the wearing of silver in particular on the body also reduces the smell of transpiration. The most important working substance in Western deodorants is silver oxide!!
