This pack-saddle was used by Andrew Harper of Outback Camel Company on recent expeditions. Its design follows those used by Afghan cameleers and inland explorers, like gold-seeker Harold Lasseter.
Lasseter is depicted, leading a black camel with a saddle similar to this one, in Eunice Yunurupa Porter’s painting, Lasseter Story.
