Al Naslaa 2, Tayma

When one approaches this massive half-dome, one is struck by the beauty of the sandstone and the desert around it. The sand seems to sweep up around it like waves along the seashore. A delicate Arabian horse is carved in the center of the stone face, and camels and a small horse are portrayed in a scene on the far right.
