Description

Seated portrait of Mahalhal bin 'Ati, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin guides, in the Wadi al 'Ayn. Mahalhal bin 'Ati, a tribesman of the Al Khamis lineage of Awamir Bedouin, crouches in the right foreground, holding food in his hands. Behind him three bags hang from a pole standing in the sand. In the distance sand fills the background.
