This is one of many studies Bomberg made of the great sandsctone gorge and rock cut temples at Petra during a three year stay in Palestine. The Siq, or shaft, is a split in the rocks eroded by the waters of the Wadi Musa. Bomberg conveys the atmosphere of stillnes and simmering heat in a range of pinks and deep blue shadows.
