Three-quarter length standing portrait of two Duru Bedouin boys in the Wadi al 'Ayn. Two Duru boys stand facing into the foreground. The older boy on the left wears a dark coloured cloak, which hangs over his head and down along either side of his thobe (shirt). On the right a younger boy stands, wearing a plaid cloth over his head and body. Behind them a bushy tree grows in the sand.

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.
