Close up profile portrait of a camel, owned by Wilfred Thesiger in 1950, at a well in the plains below Hamrat ad Duru, during the party's journey from Masruq well to Al Hubi village. The camel faces towards the left (only its head and neck are visible), and it is chewing something. It is wearing the traditional form of guiding harness, which consists of a chain halter, a neck rope, and a head rope. In the background sits a vast expanse of bare sand.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
