The sculptural composition is inspired by the aesthetics of the lifestyle of nomad people of the Middle East. Two Bedouins are depicted in their lengthy journey through a desert, at the moment when they stopped by a watering hole for a short rest and for replenishing their stock of water. Sand-colored onyx was chosen as a base for its imitating a muddy suspension of water and dusty desert sand. The architectural part of the idea implied the sculpture being the central composition of a fountain, where the camels would be fully enclosed in water – a contrast to their usual surroundings of endless sand and rocky landscapes.
