A man dressed in a uniform with medals pinned on it and wearing a fez is standing amongst the ruins of an Egyptian temple. He is resting his left hand on the handle of a sword, hanging from his side. He is looking at a large group of Bedouin either standing or sitting on the floor and on camels. A river flows in the background: there is a temple and palm trees on the opposite bank. The man and the Bedouin are cut-out photographs and the landscape around them is drawn.
