A Camel Ambulance, 19256
Pen and ink, 28.5 cm x 19.5 cm
Tailpiece drawing for Lawrence, The Seven Pillars of Wisdom: 'There, also, we bandaged up Fahad, who was sleepy with the lassitude of his severe hurt. Adhub, seeing this, took one of Matar's new carpets, and, doubling it across the camel-saddle, stitched the ends into great pockets. In one they laid Fahad, while Adhub crawled into the other as make-weight: and the camel was led off southward towards their tribal tents' (ch. 78).
