Seated group portrait of an elder tribesman of the Wahiba Bedouin with three young men in the Wadi Halfayn. On the left an elder tribesman with a large beard sits beside a tall young man, and on the right two young tribesmen sit. In front of the two young men items for making coffee, including a metal bowl, an urn and cups, lie in the sand. Behind them bare sand stretches into the far distance, where a few trees grow along the horizon.

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.
