ARABIA

Header: Temple guard/warrior of South Arabia. Painted by Ludwig Deutsch.

Top row: (1) Arab painting, 19th century. Abbasid dynasty. (2) Yemenis, Akhdam family - the
original Arabs. Also refered to Yemen’s “untouchables”, the Akhdam, Yemen’s marginalized black
minority, has suffered for centuries from perpetual discrimination and cultural persecution, and
they are seen as being at the bottom of the country’s social hierarchy. Akhdam is a literal
translation of the Arabic word “servants,” but the community prefers to be called the Muhamasheen
– “the marginalized people”. They are estimated to make up around 1.5 million of Yemen’s roughly
26 million residents. (3) Arab, Yemenis couple. (4) Arab children, clearly showing the original
African strain.


Bottom row: (1) Arab elder cooking. (2) Bust of Black Arab of old Arabia. 9th century C.E. -
during Abbasid period. (3) Yemenis elderly lady. (4) A Yemenis, Akhdam child.

The Emir. Ludwig Deutsch (1855-1935).

Above image: (1) Arab child. (2) Arab, Yemen "untouchable" or Akhdam. (3) A few of the many of
Arabia's displaced children. (4) Yemen, Akhdam, mother and child.
