Pearling Ship

This replica of a pearling ship is on the beach of Bahrain's main island, right near the bridge connecting it to Muharraq. Bahrain's major industry was pearling for much of its history, and during the 19th century the islands accounted for some huge percentage of the world's pearl supply.
