Description

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.
