THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE © American Colony, Jerusalem AN ARAB HURDLER HAS TO HOLD UP HIS "SKIRT" Hindered by the long kibr, the heavily swathed athlete clears a height of "two feet and two hands" with plenty to spare. All but the children wear the keffiveh headdress bound with the goat's hair agal (see page 78). Five of the figures wear the black aba, while the others have nothing over the belted white kibr. The stony, barren landscape is typical of Bedouin lands.
