Owais Mughal

This photo is courtesy of Mohammad Ali Musa. Can you guess what is this thing shown in the photograph below. The photo is taken in Quetta, Pakistan. Hints: This thing was more in use a generation or two ago than at present. No, it is not used as decoration. It is one component of a bigger instrument.
