Saudi Arabia’s Envoy Opens ‘Al-Mangour: Loved and Beloved’ Exhibition in the US

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s US ambassador, Princess Reema bint Bandar, opened the “Al-Mangour: Loved and Beloved” exhibition in Washington on Wednesday.

The Saudi Embassy and the International Finance Corporation presented the work of Saudi artist Ahmad Angawi.

The exhibition, held at the IFC headquarters, highlights the beauty of Al-Mangour, a traditional Hijazi craft made of wooden latticework that forms a mesh-like screen.

The craft reflects the spiritual relationship between humans by telling the story of two halves that combine to form one unit — the “loved and beloved.”

The exhibition featured musical performances as well as traditional cuisine.

Princess Reema emphasised the importance of traditional arts in strengthening cultural identity, solidifying national heritage, and fostering international relations in her speech.

She applauded Angawi for preserving and developing Hijazi traditions.

Makhtar Diop, Director of the IFC, was among those in attendance, along with officials, diplomats, and artists.
