Description

Seated portrait of Muhammad al Auf, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions, in a camp between Khaur Sabkha well and Khaba well in the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). Muhammad al Auf, a tribesman of the Bayt Mbarik lineage of the Rashid Bedouin, sits cross-legged, holding a needle and thread in his hands. Several bundles of cloth lie in front of him.
