Description

Portrait of two Rashid tribesmen at an encampment near Bir al Tawil in the Ramlat ar Rabbad. The two men sit cross-legged on the ground. They are using daggers to strip meat off bones. These men are sons of Muhammad, a sheikh of the Rashid Bedouin, with whom Wilfred Thesiger and his Bedouin companions stayed during their first crossing of the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) in December 1946.

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.
