View of a mountain dwelling belonging to people from one of the Qara tribes in the Jabal Qara Mountains. In the near distance a man stands at the mouth of a large cave. Nearby another man walks down the steep hillside below the cave. Tribesmen of the Jabal Qara, their families, and their livestock inhabit these caves.
