Dar al-Hajar: This new stained-glass window and its ornately sculpted plaster of Paris frame were installed by the talented artisan glazier as I watched. He told me that this architectural art form has been practiced for a couple of centuries in the region that encompasses what is now southern Saudi Arabia and northern Yemen. I saw similar windows in homes near Najaran, Saudi Arabia.
