Seated portrait of Salim bin Kabina, one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, riding a camel during the party's journey from Jabal Sumeini to the port city of Sharjah. Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, kneels in the saddle of his camel [most of the camel's body is outside the frame]. He looks down at his hands, which are resting on a rifle in a leather sleeve balanced across his lap. He wears a cartridge belt and leather suspenders over his thobe (long shirt) and has a ghutra (headscarf) wrapped around his head. In the background another member of the party stands in the sand beside a few piles of blankets.
