Standing full length portrait of a young man with a cow at an oasis on Bahrain Island. A young man wearing a ghutra (headscarf) and a wraparound skirt stands in the shade of a large leafy tree, holding the head rope of a cow. The cow stands at the centre beside a large tree trunk. It has a large hump projecting from its shoulders and a rope through its nostrils. In the background another man stands under the leafy tree.

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.
