If you like strange creations from around the world, you will be impressed by this camel hair art. The Bikaner Camel Festival is a yearly event that takes place on the border of Pakistan and India where people race camels. But these camels are anything but shabby. Their coats have been shaved and trimmed into elaborate and beautiful patterns.

Camel hair art at The Bikaner Camel Festival can take up to three years to complete. The camels must be kept clean and their fur must be regularly tended to in order to achieve this majestic effect.

If you're thinking about taking a trip to the middle east you should try to check out the Bikaner Camel Festival. Seeing the camel hair art shaved into the large mammals will not be the only detail that will blow your mind. Stats for Intricate Camel Hair Art Trending: Older & Warm
