Lower Wadi al Hilo LV16, deer, Sharjah

Place Discovered

Wadi Al Helo - Sharjah


- All




A representation of a deer that does not exist in Arabia, or perhaps anywhere. There is some indication that this was a wild ass that was later modified with the addition of extraordinary antlers. It has all of the traditional characteristics of an wild ass, except for the antlers. Still under investigation.

Lower Wadi al Hilo LV16, deer, Sharjah. Located in a lower wadi side valley filled with petroglyphs.

Wadi Helo (Arabic: وادي حلو, literally ‘Sweet wadi’) is a seasonal watercourse located in the Hajar Mountains of Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates. There are remains of a massive 19th century village, as well as houses and features dating from the Neolithic to the Islamic Period. The site is important for both the extensive water course, and for the rich copper deposits that were mined for over 8000 years. Numerous petroglyphs are found along the edge of the wadi.
