Portrait of a group of four Sahul Bedouin subduing a camel at the Ar Rumhiya wells near Ar Riyadh. Four Sahul Bedouin, two men and two boys, work as a team to subdue a camel. The two men hold down the camel's legs and the boys hold down the camel's neck. In the distance beyond a herd of camels rests on a vast barren plain.

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.
