Behind the Image

by Levison Wood

The Jibbali people have lived in the crags and caves of this isolated escarpment for hundreds of years, evading the rule of the Arab sultans in both Oman and Yemen. They are legendary camel handlers and rulers over a remote highland that is transformed each year as monsoon rains - called the 'khareef' - turn a brown barren mountain into a lush green landscape for a few weeks, with hidden forests and glades known only to the tribe. Nowadays the area is a military training area for the Oman army, to protect against Yemeni bandits and Somali smugglers, who hide out in the hills. Most of the locals now live in the towns, but a few hardy camel herders remain committed to following the ancient trails and footsteps of their forefathers. To this day, they can be found camping out in the caves, tending to their goats and collecting precious frankincense, which is then sold in the city of Salalah and burned in places of worship around the world.
