Trade site pioneers image Emirati artist Ahlam Al Shamsi published it through her account on Snapchat from inside her home, and despite her spontaneity and lack of clarity, she was accused of exaggerating and criticized.

Although it was not clear why Ahlam carried this piece, the size of the large oud piece prompted many commentators to accuse it of showing off and exaggerating, while some compared the oud pieces they use in their homes and that huge piece.
