Ahmad Abu Rub's project is inspired by his father, who passed down all of his skills and passion to him. The project focuses on bottled sand art and is run by Ahmad's family, which has one of the oldest stores specializing in this art in Aqaba. Despite their long-standing reputation, the store struggles with its location and size, and Ahmad is eager to grow the business as a source of livelihood for his family.
