Description

Portrait of Hamad bin Saadna (known by Wilfred Thesiger as Hamad bin Hanna), a tribesman of the Bayt Hanna lineage of Rashid Bedouin, in the Ramlat ar Rabbad sands. Hamad bin Saadna and his camel stand in front of a small bush on the side of a sand dune. He scratches at his beard with his right hand and leans on his camel stick with his left. The camel next to him chews a mouthful of foliage from a bush in front of them.
