Description

Seated group portrait of four young Wahiba Bedouin in the Wadi Halfayn. On the left a tall man sits beside three young tribesmen, each of whom is wearing a thobe (shirt) and a headscarf topped with an 'agal (head rope). The boy on the right holds a camel stick. In front of the boys metal bowls, two stones and other items lie in the sand. Behind them bare sand stretches into the far distance.

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.
