BLA-NAT / Belief token


In the past, it was very difficult for the pilgrims to complete the ritual of kissing the Black Stone since there were always many people. There were even more Muslims who could not go to Mecca. BLA NAT stands for the avatars of the Black Stone and is designed for pilgrims who cannot complete the ritual. Each pilgrim can have a self-testing BLA NAT to replace the ritual when bypassing the Kaaba. The display of digital technology is applied to convey emotions and record the number of kisses. After the ritual, seven small gravels will light up, symbolizing the completion of the ritual.
