Arabian Rock Art Heritage

The Application of Advanced Imaging Technology to Saudi Arabian Rock Art

Dhabiya, near Shamli, Ha’il Province

Dhabiya is an attractive locality that has three individual panels separated by several meters. They all show very finely executed Arabian horses. This panel is the most interesting in that it has a man seated on a horse that is wearing a saddle blanket.
