View of four Awamir Bedouin women at a well near Al Ain. A pair of women stand behind two women seated on the ground. All the women wear sheila (head cloths) over their upper bodies. The two women standing are wearing burqa (face masks worn by married women). On the far left a pot and a goatskin lie on the ground. In the background is a tree and two standing camels.

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.
