Description
Portrait of members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party and two Wahiba Bedouin at Buraymah well in the Wadi Halfayn. In the foreground three men and a woman stand at the opening of a well hauling water. The two men on the left, wearing large embroidered headscarves and light coloured shirts (thobe) are members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party. The girl standing in the right foreground holding a length of rope, and the boy behind her, are Wahiba Bedouin. The girl is wearing a silver disc on her forehead. In the distance behind them a line of trees and bushes grows on the flat plain.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
