Portrait of a tribesman of the Rashid Bedouin at an encampment near Bir al Tawil in the Ramlat ar Rabbad. This man is the son of Muhammad, a sheikh of the Rashid Bedouin, with whom Wilfred Thesiger and his Bedouin companions stayed during Wilfred Thesiger's first crossing of the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) in December 1946. Muhammad's son sits in the sand slicing a piece of meat with a knife. Strips of meat is spread out on a cloth in front of him.
