Jamal's Journey When a desert sandstorm overtakes a party of Bedouins out hunting with their falcons, Jamal, a baby camel, is separated from his parents and the small boy who cares for him. Alone and frightened, he encounters various desert creatures, but they are too fearful of one another to be able to help him. Rescue comes when a falcon leads him towards a great city on the horizon and within sight of the caravan of riders who soon spot the lost animal and turn back. The artwork offers interesting contrasts between the monochrome sweep of the desert and the explosion of colour in the market place on the city's outskirts and between the images of nomadic cultures and the ultra-modern architecture of Dubai's glittering towers.
