Description

Portrait of three members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party hauling water from Furai well in Sharqiyah Sands. Three men stand around the opening of a well. On the left a man beds over the opening of Furai well, pulling on a line of rope. At the centre Hamad, a tribesman of the Mahra Bedouin, stands behind the well, while on the right a third man stands by the well holding a line of rope. Behind them a number of camels crowd around, waiting for water.
