Workshops and façades of alabaster showrooms in El Swellam, Al Qourna, across the Nile from Luxor.
On the far left is Ahmed Abdel Aal Bedear, 56 y.o. reading the newspaper while his brother Essam El Din Abdel Aal Bedear smokes shisha on a hookah. There are five Aal Bedear brothers who dominate the alabaster carving business in this small, artfully decorated village.
