This panel is part of the V&A's Medieval and Renaissance collection. It was made in Zurich in 1572. The panel was probably displayed in the hall of the Guild of the Camel, one of the fourteen traditional guilds of Zurich. The members were mainly grocers and merchants, and the camel was a symbol of the flow of trade between Europe and Asia.

Filling the borders of the panel are the family and professional arms of the members. In the centre there is a camel on which rides a young man wearing an elaborate feathered headdress. There is a landscape of mountains and the see in the background. The figures are enclosed within a colonnaded archway and over the keystone are displayed the arms of the canton and city of Zurich. Surrounding this central image are marks of various individuals who were guildsmen of the Zurich Guild of the Camel.
