The desert in a bottle… Sand art in Amman

20140112-081614.jpg

Camels trail lazily through the heat of the desert towards an oasis, mountains lean into the skyline in the distance. The scene is a picturesque array of beautiful colours skilfully blended together…

You don’t need to have visited the Wadi Rum to be transported there. You can get the essences of the the Jordanian desert right on the streets of Amman – in a bottle!

I met Hisham as I wondered aimlessly through the bustling streets and markets of al-Balad, downtown Amman. The young artist who has been making sand art bottles for 7 years, invited me to sit and watch as he once again mastered his art of capturing the desert in a bottle! Click here to watch the video!

You can find Hisham’s stall in al-Balad, downtown Amma, opposite the Roman theatre.

Or email him for more info and to place orders: sandbottles@yahoo.com

Enjoy Amman!
