Seated portrait of three Wahiba Bedouin at a camp in the Wadi Halfayn. On the left an elder tribesman of the Wahiba Bedouin sits shaded by a tent or canopy erected behind him. He has a thick grey beard and wears a thobe (shirt) and a taqiyah cap. In the centre a young tribesman sits, while at the far right another elder tribesman sits on the ground resting a camel stick against his cheek.
