Portrait of two tribesmen of the Sahul Bedouin at one of the Ar Rumhiya wells near Ar Riyadh. A young tribesman of the Sahul Bedouin stands in the foreground wearing a bisht (robe) over his thobe (shirt) and facing forward. Behind him another man stands on the right. This man is wearing a cartridge belt and leaning on a wooden post topped with a rope and pulley. In the far background a herd of camels rests on the plain behind them.
