Stamps to showcase ‘Al Ardah’, Oman’s traditional art of horse and camel taming

Under the patronage of Royal Court Affairs, Oman Post, an Asyad Group member company, launched eight stamps to showcase one of the Sultanate’s most celebrated forms of folklore, ‘Al Ardah’ -- traditional art of horse and camel taming. The new stamp collection celebrates inscribing the centuries-long tradition on the UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Abdulmalik Albalushi from Oman Post said, “We would like to thank the Royal Court Affairs for their sponsorship and support to bring this collection of stamps to life.  We are always exploring and looking at ways to foster greater expression and presence of Omani folklore, building on traditions of the past and ensuring these forms of art are celebrated and passed along through generations to come.”
