The first was this magnificent Akhal-Teke horse.
The coat on this breed of horse has a bloom. As on this fine fellow, it shines so much it looks like metal. These horses originate from the deserts of Turkmenistan. Their coats act as camouflage in the shimmering desert heat. Prized for their beauty as well as their strength and skill, they are known as the Heavenly Horses.
The second prop was a ruby pendant, made in the Ottoman style.
And the final detail, to please other senses, was the song of the nightingales.
