Amazing Art On Camels

June 20, 2012 - Posted by Tolzoh
Every year, during the two special days in January, the desert city of Bikaner in the Indian state of Rajasthan, hosts the most colourful event of The Bikaner Camel Festival. This festival is dedicated to the ‘Working Animals’ (camels) of this city.

This amazing and interesting tribute to camels includes a number of events, which includes races, rides, and even a beauty contest! The most interesting part of the festival is where people get to see the amazing art patterns cut and dyed on the camel’s hair. This particular trend can only be found in this region of the world where such an amount of work and dedication is put into making camels walking pieces of art. By dedication, I do mean dedication because according to the photographer Osakabe Yasuo, the artwork on the camels can take up to three years in the making. (Don't forget to leave a comment:)
