Hi, Sean here. I'd like to see more discussion about obelisks if possible, and direct linking to the main page for that topic, for people who are unfamiliar with it. You might think about doing the same for facades. Iowa.Grad.13 (talk) 19:24, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi, this is Veronica - In terms of organization, you might be able to consolidate some aspects of this page by linking to other well-established pages, such as the more general article about Nabataeans. Additionally, the heading "Represented" was a little confusing to me - perhaps rename that section to something like "Religious Representation."NaturallyAesthetic (talk) 00:04, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Varun- Seems this should be a sub-section of the Nabataean page instead of being a whole separate article since it is rather short, pictures would be interesting and if you have the time add more info in general --DumbArtStudent (talk) 00:07, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Marleen - The article is very helpful but may be too specific to Wikipedia users who are looking for quick reference. I would suggest condensing the sections and only briefly touching on specific types of tombs, etc. Also, try not to elaborate too much on topics that already have WIkipedia pages created. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mnlinares (talkcontribs) 03:51, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Whitney-There are alot of groups and subgroups. I know there is alot of information but maybe adding more links to things with Wiki pages would help. Also adding photos to help explain all the info would help readers with no previous idea of what nabataean art. (Wmwright (talk) 23:50, 29 November 2012 (UTC))

Notes from class: 1. Put the betyls portion under sculpture 2. Include an architecture portion, where we should include tombs 3. Make less sub-captions (Spederse (talk) 13:42, 28 November 2012 (UTC))

Content Suggestions[edit]

I'd suggest moving betyls into the Sculpture category.--Bjornpa (talk) 19:09, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
