Full length portrait of an Arab man, one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides, carrying firewood during the party's journey from Jabal Sumeini to the port city of Sharjah. The man, a retainer of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, walks across a bare sandy area with a large load of firewood over his shoulder. He is wearing a thobe (long shirt) topped with a cartridge belt and has his ghutra (headscarf) wrapped closely around his head and face. In the background tufts of vegetation grow on a vast flat plain that stretches into the distance.
