BEDOUIN FOLKLORE

Material: Olive tree root
Height: 52 cm, Length:85 cm, Width: 65 cm

First photo: A statue showing the Bedouin folklore symbols: The bedouin with a kaffiyah and akel (headdress and headband), tent, coffee set, camel and the inscription in Arabic along the path to the tent – the Bedouin’s blessing to his guest.

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

Third photo: Focusing on the tent. At the left side of the photo, the Rababa – traditional musical instrument having one string.
. Fourth photo: Focusing on the g’zavh, tray and the finjans (coffee pot, tray and coffee cups(

Fifth photo: Focusing on the camel – used for transportation. Camels symbolize the economic status of the Bedouin.

Sixth Photo: Focusing on the script in Arabic. Bedouin’s blessing when a visitor comes to his tent: “Ahlan Usahlan, Hayek Allah” meaning “Welcome, God bless you”.

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

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.
