Bouthayna Al Muftah, Kan Ya Makan

Kan Ya Ma Kaan by Bouthayna Al Muftah

Taking inspiration from traditional Qatari jewelry, Bouthayna Al Muftah’s work Kan Ya Ma Kaan (‘Once Upon a Time’) explores the notion of a place and time.

One of Qatar’s most popular emerging artists, Bouthayna Al Muftah called on the heritage of Qatari jewelry to create this installation in the National Museum of Qatar’s Café 875. Taking inspiration from traditional Qatari jewelry and thahab or 875 (21 karat) gold, the installation has been designed to complement the museum’s contemporary architecture.
