Photographer's Note

The animal market in Jeddah is located in the southern part of city, far away from anything, even from the religious police (lol), those sheep merchantsí were singing and dancing in welcoming me into their home-like part of the souk.

Dancing with large wooden sticks is popular in many regions across Saudi Arabia, mainly, the western (where I come from) and the southern regions of Saudi Arabia. The central region (Riyadh City) for example; uses swords instead of wood in their dance.

Analyzing such habits reveals so many insights about a certain culture, their mindset and can explain their behaviors.
