Seated portrait of Mahalhal bin 'Ati, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin guides, eating a meal during the party's journey from Ramlat al Ghirbaniyat to Furai well. Mahalhal bin 'Ati, a tribesman of the Al Khamis lineage of Awamir Bedouin, crouches in the foreground, placing a morsel of food in his mouth. He wears a light coloured thobe (shirt) and a dark coloured ghutra (headscarf). In the background sand fills the distance behind him.
