“Would but the Desert of the Fountain yield

One glimpse--if dimly, yet indeed, reveal'd,

To which the fainting Traveller might spring,

As springs the trampled herbage of the field!"

Omar Khayyam, a Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and poet.

 

The seal “Camel” In the sand of Arabia there is a desert and abandoned place that once a year becomes alive. Dozens of tents arise for the visitors and the Arabic nobility. A racetrack is also prepared for royal camels. Thousands of camels` owners come to the place from all around the country. The horn plays and the camels rush overtaking the wind, rising clouds of dust and bringing their riders to the top of prestige and honor.

The camel who won the race turns his muzzle to his master. The jewelers of Lobortas Classic Jewelry House imprinted this moment in silver. But the camel can not hear the words of praise because since 2004 the children who used to ride camels during the races were replaced by robots. That is why the rider is silent, but the camel`s harness can tell as a lot. The national emblem of Qatar (شعار قطر) is made of gold. Two crossed sabers, a ship and palm trees are engraved very precisely and with respect for the smallest details.

On the other side of this precious composition there are is an recognizable outline of the Umm-Salah-Ali towers. They are located in the most famous archeological district in the region. According to a legend, the titans lived there.

The seal “Camel” is a perfect Formula One car of the desert.
