Description

Portrait of Sadr, a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, standing with his camel at 'Ayn al Hasy well. Sadr, a tribesman of the Sa'ar Bedouin, stands on the left, holding the head rope of his camel. The camel is saddled with a Sa'ar saddle, which sits high on the camel's back and has posts at the front and back of the saddle. Sadr was one of two Sa'ar tribesmen who guided Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party from Manwakh to 'Ayn al Hasy well.
