Armenian Ceramic Plate with Bedouin & Camel Scene
Brand: Armenian Ceramics
This plate depicts a lovely local scene with a Bedouin tent, a man riding a camel while one drinks from bright blue clear water and palm trees rising up from the gleaming desert sand with the word Jerusalem.
When visiting Israel, one is bound to take a trip to Southern Israel to experience the hospitable Bedouin culture of camel riding, sleeping in a large Bedouin tent and tasting their delicious food. The colors on this plate depict the awe striking colors one sees in Israel: gold desert sand, bright, clear water and tall green palm trees. Camel riding is a fun pastime all tourists should experience and a means of transport for Bedouins. The hand painted image portrays the lovely, vibrant garb of the Bedouin and the equipment placed on the camels. The word Jerusalem features in black on the top of the plate in a semi-circle form. The blue border is that of a typical Armenian design.
This wonderful plate can be used as a decorative ornament or as part of a set with other ceramics to serve guests on special occasions.
Bring a touch of art, history, culture and Jerusalem to someone's home with this lovely piece.
Note: Armenian ceramics are delicate and should be treated with care. Each piece is individually hand made with the ancient skill of mixing and shaping clay and water and then placing the object in an oven or kiln at a temperature of 1000°C until it hardens. The piece is then beautifully hand painted with metallic and oxidized paint, maintaining a natural color and then placed again in the oven at the same temperature. The finishing touch is one of fine glazing.
