A parade of life-sized stone camel carvings in northern Arabia dates back to the Stone Age, and new research has discovered.

Twenty-one camel and horse-like figures were discovered in 2018 in the desert province of Jowf in northwestern Saudi Arabia. Researchers first believed that the sculpture was about 2,000 years old. This is partly because it resembles a rock relief found in the famous stone town. Petra In Jordan.
