  • One year ago, I opened my laptop and saw this image way.

  • All thought it was Photoshop.

  • Okay, this is a real thing.

  • I mean, it looks kind of Photoshop.

  • Yeah.

  • I wonder if it's Photoshopped.

  • Look at this.

  • This is crazy.

  • Okay, that's definitely Photoshop, but turns out it was not Photoshop.

  • 4000 years ago in the United Arab Emirates, someone created a beautiful ring, maybe for a wedding, maybe for a gift.

  • And that ring stayed hidden in the desert specifically here for thousands of years.

  • Until one day the local people discovered this area and found the ring.

  • It became the first ever jewelry discovered in the entire country.

  • It is evidence that this is where people designed, traded, loved and lived.

  • And you can see that evidence everywhere you go.

  • In fact, there is so much hiding under the desert right now that Onley 10 to 20% off the area was discovered.

  • The remaining 80% is still hiding here under the sand.

  • Now, this ring from the past is a symbol off the future.

  • They say history repeats itself.

  • And as we look at this beautiful design, thes words couldn't be any more true.
