Petra,  Here in a badly weathered condition is the remains of a statue that included a Nabetean and a couple of camels.   The Nabetean is visible from the waist down in the right forground.  The camels are visible at their feet,  and the one closest to the Nabetean at his belly.  All the camels legs have eroded away.  Note the water channel carved in behind the legs of the Nabetean and the camels.

Petra - Inside the Treasury.  Note the beautiful colors of the sandstone that the Treasury has been cut into.  This is all one big piece of sandstone.  One bad swing of the hammer by the sandstone cutters and the memorial would be junk!
