Qatari Folklores

I’ve always been fascinated by out unique folklores and fairytales. Ever since I was young I would always try to look for books about Qatari folklores but I’ve only seen a couple (text only) and they were someone’s graduate thesis!

Since most of these stories and told orally, each family has a different version if the same story. I’ve always wanted to visualize these stories and make them my own. Most of them are really short cautionary tales, like BöDaryah. I wanted to expand on this myth and bring a different life to it. In the future I hope to create more Qatari inspired folklores.
