Jamal-Art quilt


Jamal 2Jamal’ is going to be displayed in International quilt festival Birmingham England from 7th of August 2013 as a part of the exhibit called cross roads.

‘Jamal ‘(Camel) is known as the ship of the desert. They were the only means of transport in the desert terrain in olden days. In recent years they are also used in touristic locations in Arab countries. The quilt depicts an image from a photograph taken by my self in a trip to Syria. This depicts a camel ride in Palmyra Syria There is practically no era not represented in Syria Palmyra, the
great caravan city at westernmost point of the silk road. The carved limestone structures standing on the sand show the examples of Roman architecture.
