Second photo: Focusing on the head of the Bedouin, wearing a kaffiyah and akel.

. Fourth photo: Focusing on the g’zavh, tray and the finjans (coffee pot, tray and coffee cups(

The root as raw material after clearing mud and removing the shell.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Eli, this is incredible. The expression on the face of the Bedouin man is stunningly lifelike.

My friend drew my attention that there is a printing mistake in the Arabic caption. So, I burned the two missing dots and here is the new photo.
