Smiling woman with golden jewels, Ibra, Oman

This is the only woman i've seen in the street wearing those nice jewels on the head.

Omani women have very colourful costumes which vary from region to region. The main components of a woman's outfit comprise of a dress which is worn over trousers (sirwal) and the headdress, called the liha.
