Portrait of two Rashid tribesmen at an encampment near Bir al Tawil in the Ramlat ar Rabbad. The two men sit cross-legged on the ground. They are using daggers to strip meat off bones. These men are sons of Muhammad, a sheikh of the Rashid Bedouin, with whom Wilfred Thesiger and his Bedouin companions stayed during their first crossing of the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) in December 1946.
