Pearl Monument in Bahrain


































Pearl Monument was a roundabout located near the financial district of Manama in Bahrain. The monument was destroyed in 2011 by government forces as part of a crackdown on protesters during the Bahraini uprising.
The Pearl Monument consisted of six dhow "sails" projecting up to the sky, which came together to hold a pearl at the top. The six sails designated the Gulf Cooperation Council's six member nations, while the pearl symbolized their united heritage and the country's famous history of pearl cultivation.
