Shepherds are seen herding their goats and camels in this imaginative pictorial tapestry made of wool and cotton. The imagery reflects the world of the artist, who created the tapestry in imitation of the famous Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre. Located at Harrania, Egypt, the Centre was founded in 1952 by Ramses Wissa Wassef, to test his belief in the innate creativity of young people.
