Description

View of a Bedouin woman standing outside a tent in Al Muwaiji near Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain oasis. In the foreground a Bedouin woman (likely from the Awamir Bedouin) stands at the entrance to a tent. The woman is wearing the burqa face mask that is traditionally worn by married woman and a black veil over her dark clothes, which are embroidered with gold. Behind her the tent is built of woven palm mats and has a door made from tied palm fronds.
