Full length portrait of two Arab men in front of a rock wall in the city of Sawda. The man on the left is wearing a long straight dagger (jambiya or khanjar) in a horizontal manner over his thobe (shirt). This style of wearing daggers is typical of this region. The man on the right is wearing a leaf decoration in his hair.
