Portrait of Wahiba Bedouin at Buraymah well in the Wadi Halfayn. In the right foreground a woman and two men gather water from a rock-lined well. Two men stand on the left, helping with the ropes. In the background a man and a number of goats wait by the well. In the further background two men stand near piles of belongings, and a few camels rest in the sand. In the far distance trees grow in a line on the flat plain.

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.
