Camel Art

I can't remember what it was I was looking for, but I came across this photo and wondered how in the world that pattern was done. Which led to learning about a camel festival in India, really interesting. Have a look at this person's other photos, very nice :)

There's a company called stencil bum who sell stencils to use when clipping horses but they aren't as detailed as this camel's clip ...

I imagine this was done by hand though ... pretty amazing!

It looks like it is cut into the hair, in relief and is so detailed. Camels often look cross, and they spit!!

from what i've read, its done by hand and can take years to do
