World’s largest mosaic portrait of HM launched

By Abdulaziz al Jahdhami - MUSCAT — Sablat Oman, the prime network in the Sultanate, launched the world’s largest marble mosaic portrait of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos yesterday at the Wave Muscat.

Most of the 128,274 stones used for the 8X5 metre portrait originate from different mountains and sea beds of Oman.

Sablat Oman came up with the concept of presenting His Majesty Sultan Qaboos on his 40th accession day with totally hand-made marble mosaic portrait.

This portrait made an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest single portrait in the world. The stones mosaic portrait was designed by two designing companies; Ka Design of UK and Bramko Bahrain. The photograph of His Majesty to be depicted in the mosaic stones was carefully chosen by the team from different photos taken by His Majesty’s personal photographer Mohammed Mustafa.

The cermony was held under the auspices of Sayyid Abdulla bin Hamad al Busaidy, Chairman of State Audit Institution. The selected photo of His Majesty in a simple dress reflected His Majesty’s true character and humbleness. This grand project was completed within 120 days. Commenting on the project, Sayyid Abdulla al Busaidy said: “It is really a great project initiated by a group of Omani youths. In fact it is a gift of love to the man of love and justice.”

OMAN – Tradition and modernity

Oman lies at the eastern corner of the Arabian peninsula. Sharjah and Fujairah (UAE) separate the main part of Oman from the northernmost part of the state, a peninsula (Musandam) extending into the Strait of Hormuz. It is for many Westerners a country waiting to be discovered.

Historically Omanis were seafarers and traders who dominated regional commodity trading in the Indian Ocean, East Africa and the Arabian Gulf. There were thus a succession of migrations which saw the growth of settlements along some parts of the East African coast.

Prior to the coming on stream of oil in 1964, the country was dependent on the agricultural sector and on fishing activities. Since 1970 His Majesty Sultan Qaboos has strived to modernize his country and oil revenues have given him the opportunity to develop a modern infrastructure of roads, ports and airports, as well as first-class telecommunications and broadcasting systems. Some 50 hospitals have been opened throughout the country and educational programmes for all ages successfully implemented.

Of course oil reserves will be exhausted one day and the country is therefore diversifying its economy, especially in the field of tourism. Among the Gulf states, Oman has many advantages for developing tourism: its climate, varied scenery, archaeological and historical remains, as well as its friendly people. With its high standard of hotel accommodation, it can satisfy even the most demanding travelers
