Portrait of two sailors on the deck of a dhow (sailboat) in Dubai Creek. On the left a man wearing a headscarf and a wraparound skirt stands holding on to the ship's tiller. Behind him another sailor, wearing a shirt and a wraparound skirt, stands nearby on the right. In the background the dhow's sails are tied to the yard and a crate sits on deck.
