This is the famous Turkish mosaic glass lights.

I took these pictures from Souq Qariat Al Barri in Abu Dhabi.

These mosaic lights are unique for their colors and designs. They are used as table lamps or chandlers, and they are all handcraft made.

As I asked the seller about it, he said that these mosaic lamps were used 500 years ago by the Ottoman Empire, and only those royal family could afford it.

They are still used now as decorations, or to symbolize the Turkish Culture.

I was very amazed by the colors and the details in the exterior.
