A Wadi Wander 🌄
Lawrence of Arabia quite possibly (maybe?!) rode a camel in this very spot. WHERE WAS MY CAMEL?! 🐪🐪🐪

From my latest catalogue: ICONIC 2017, a 19th century gilt Arabian Jambiya with wootz Damascus blade. Weighty and richly decorated, this Assib jambiya is made in the Meccan style and, importantly, it is almost identical to two daggers which were famously worn by that eminent figure of British history, Lawrence of Arabia (1). The I-shaped grip, typical of this weapon-type, is made of silver and has been generously gilded. It has two rosette-shaped buttons with pronounced central hemispheres, set against elegantly engraved foliate scrolls; with the rear showing a scaled pattern. The grip concludes with an attractive domed boss at each end of the pommel’s two tips.
The scabbard’s design is in keeping with the above and presents a series of beaded bands that border a complex, beautiful arrangement of openwork motifs. Eyelets on either side provide the means to attach the jambiya to a belt while a diagonal band bisects the scabbard’s front. Above this, a small inscription in Arabic reads: Work of ‘Abd Allah Rukhan (Ruhan?)
The scabbard’s mouth is covered in maroon velvet, ensuring a quiet and elegant drawing and sheathing of the dagger. (The same velvet is visible through some of the pierced work above the diagonal band.) The scabbard’s tip sweeps gracefully upwards until it terminates in a large, striated thum, or pommel.
The blade itself is forged from high quality wootz steel—a rare feature—and one that further indicates that this dagger was made for an important man with refined tastes. Alexander (2) describes a Meccan dagger in the Metropolitan Museum’s collection (31.35.1a-c) that is a very close relative to our example—it is likely that both were made in the same workshop.

Peter O'Toole, on fame after Lawrence Of Arabia: "I woke up one morning to find I was famous. I bought a white Rolls-Royce and drove down Sunset Boulevard, wearing dark specs and a white suit, waving like the Queen Mum." #PeterOToole #LawrenceOfArabia #bornonthisday🎂🎈

"I come
My body scales heaven
In fumes of burnt petrol
A lord that is expected
Silent joy at my arrival
Long arpeggios of chafing wires
The concentration of the body
In entering a loop " .

Wadi Rum, or the most amazing desert I have ever seen. #Desert #Jordan #Petra #WadiRum #LawrenceOfArabia #MexicanTraveler

Le Wadi Rum ou Wadi Ramm est un paysage désertique comportant des canyons, des arches naturelles, des falaises et des grottes, situé au sud de l'Arabah en Jordanie. Il a été inscrit au Patrimoine mondial en 2011 en tant que bien mixte naturel et culturel. #wadirum #jordan #jordanie #desert #lawrenceofarabia #bridge #spectacular #spectacularviews #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #traveller #igersjordan #instatravel #instatraveling

The largest of Rum's three arches is the Burdah Rock Bridge, precariously perched about 80m above surrounding rock. There’s a precipitous hike to the summit. #wadirum #jordan #jordanie #desert #lawrenceofarabia #bridge #spectacular #spectacularviews #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #traveller #igersjordan #instatravel #instatraveling #burdahrockbridge

Wadi Rum also known as The Valley of the Moon is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 60 km (37 mi) to the east of Aqaba; it is the largest wadi in Jordan. Wadi Rum is Arabic for "Roman Valley", or "Valley of the Rûm" #wadirum #jordan #jordanie #desert #lawrenceofarabia #bridge #spectacular #spectacularviews #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #traveller #igersjordan #instatravel #instatraveling

- Конечно, это больно.
- Ну, и в чём же тут фокус?
- А фокус в том, чтобы не обращать внимания на боль.

И, раз уж так глубоко откликается внутри, пора посмотреть его заново #lawrenceofarabia

I follow a lot of WW1 pages on my personal account so why not begin collecting VHS of it? Hmu if you see WW1 related VHS (including the other version of this film) when you're tape hunting 🔥📼🔥 #ww1 #lawrenceofarabia

Lawrence of Arabia enjoys a cup of tea at the @towerofdavid after a historical reenactment of General Edmund Allenby entering the Old City of Jerusalem via Jaffa Gate on December 11, 1917, effectively ending 400 years of Ottoman rule.

Kawas- the man leading a ceremonial procession with a special walking stick. Today he led the 100 years event to mark General Allenby entrance to #Jerusalem. Also attended: the last Ottoman mayor of Jerusalem Husain El Husseini, General Allenby and #lawrenceofarabia. #towerofdavid #jaffagate #generalandgentleman exhibition

This is Saqqara. Specifically the pyramid of Josu. It's the oldest stone structure in the world and arguably the first pyramid.
I had a bit of a moment here. On the far side we filmed a short scene. And in the background there was nothing. Nothing but desert. Endless.
I've been obsessed with Lawrence of Arabia since I first saw it over several days on a crappy 13" screen. It wasn't until I stood here that it really dawned on me both how it must have felt to be in the middle of the desert as the sole English soldier for hundred of miles. And also for those making the film, how impossibly tough it must have been to keep equipment running in the heat, with the sand and with the isolation.
I loved Saqqara.

My grandfather had this painting made after he watched "Lawrence of Arabia" in the cinema - in glorious 70mm.
Now I know where I get my obsessive love for that film from.

The Gaming Garage (used to be Gaming Generations) sells used dvd's two for a buck.
The first time I saw this one was when I was a kid with my folks and sister. I think my dad saw it when it was new. He was excited that our local cinema was showing it and he could share it with us on the big screen. They even did the intermission. My mom liked it but she didn't like the references that Lawrence was a homosexual. I look forward to seeing it again with out the homophobe aura looming over it.

Tagged by @samhain4000 for five movies (I picked six) people would be surprised I like. I picked these particular films because I ended up loving every single one of them so much, despite thinking they would be painful to watch. #lifeofbrian #dasboot #thekingsspeech #amadeus #ran #lawrenceofarabia

Today I celebrate the 55th anniversary of my favorite movie.
December 10, 1962 was shown one of the greatest films for all time - "Lawrence of Arabia".
I've watched it when I was 16 and absolutely felt in love with this story and lead character was played by gorgeous Peter O'Toole. This man with mesmerizing comfort and cruelty blue eyes inspires me all my life.
Happy birthday, Mr.Lawrence! * * *

55 years ago today, filmgoers at the Odeon Leicester Square watched Colonel T.E. Lawrence blow out a half-spent match and instantly transform the screen into a blazing red Arabian dawn. It was the royal premiere of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962) directed by David Lean.
