Special thanks to John and Kathy Haberman for all the photos on this page. Their contributions have greatly aided us in recording Meda’in Saleh for those who cannot enter Saudi Arabia at this time. It is presumed that Muslim zealots smashed the faces from most images long ago, leaving this falcon headless. This falcon has it's head. The falcon was a popular image for the Nabataeans in Meda'in Saleh. Can anyone identify these creatures? They appear to be similar to some found in Babylon. A head with snakes on either side, topped by a falcon with rosettes below. Assyrian crow steps adorn this tomb. This falcon is well formed and decorated. The area above the door to this tricillium (dining room) is decorated with a face, snakes, rosettes and and a falcon (some suggest an eagle) Notice the wide (fat?) head that decorates the center of this facade.
