Seated portrait of two boys from one of the Shahra tribes in the Jabal Qara mountains. Two boys kneel side by side facing forward. The boy on the left has a completely shaved head. The boy on the right has his hair shaved only on the sides of his head, leaving a strip of curly hair in the middle. This haircut is a sign that the boy on the right has not yet been circumcised.

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.
