Bikaner is an amazing city located in the heart of the desert, cars appeared here relatively recently, so the locals depended on camels for a very long time, since this was their only means of transportation. And today these animals are very revered as they are famous for their endurance, strength and beauty!

The festival opens with a parade of camels adorned with colorful accessories from head to toe. Then comes the camel haircut competition, camel races, camel acrobatics. Within the framework of the festival, contests for people are also held: they choose the miss and mister of the festival, there is a review of beards and mustaches, running with pots on their heads, a competition for winding a turban. The skills of camels and people are evaluated by a special jury. The festival ends with torch tricks and fireworks.

The camel, which is planned to be decorated in this way, is subjected to close attention to its wool for several years - it is grown and leveled, and then fabulous patterns are cut out on their body. The effect is incredible and amazing. It is a pity that one cannot ask what the camels themselves think about this.

Camel body art

It is clear that ordinary artists, creating canvases, also observe proportions. But there is a canvas, and in this case the “canvas” breathes, spits, relieves and often turns out to be not very agreeable. Plus, this living canvas has an uneven surface, which adds complexity to the drawing. But the "camel artists" successfully cope with all these difficulties.
