Portrait of Bil Ghaith, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Hejaz guides, drinking from a small cup in Jizan. He is sitting on a carpet inside a house. Bil Ghaith, a teenaged boy from the Harb Bedouin tribe of the Wadi al Ahsabah, accompanied Wilfred Thesiger on his 1946 and 1947 journeys through the Hejaz region.
