The Dance of the Sisters

Title

The Dance of the Sisters

Description

The process of mapping Middle Eastern geology in search for precious resources was quickly taken up by multinational corporations and specifically the ‘Seven Sisters’ who had claims most of the Middle East and it was these Seven companies that ruled, governed and divvied land, resources and prices of oil. The companies based their concessions on geological maps that promised the future of oil.
