One day a Dark Arabic saw her and fell in love. The two become of the tender, but the girl did not know that the beautiful Dark Arabic from there soon would return home to his wife. When she heard of it, in a rage, he beheaded Dark Arabic and used his head as a vessel, which put on display on his balcony. The inhabitants of the village taken by envy did make vases with Dark Arabic faces and put on the sills of the balconies. Hence the custom of exposing the Dark Head.
