Jnah, Baabda district

Issam Al Houssaymi has been a sculptor and a painter, specifically on ostrich eggs, for more than 15 years. He claims that carving on ostrich eggs requires a lot of concentration, calm, and patience, mainly because the duration of carving ranges from 4 to 20 hours or so, according to the subject. Issam El Houseini has participated in many exhibitions, whether in Lebanon or abroad. His small workshop is located in Jnah, next to the General Hospital of Beirut.
