Description
Seated portrait of the Imam of Oman's representative, taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Jabal Buwaydah to the village of Al Qabil. The Imam of Oman's representative, who accompanied Wilfred Thesiger from 'Izz to Al Muwaiji, crouches on his knee in the foreground. He wears a cartridge belt over his thobe (shirt), a light coloured headscarf and has a long thick grey beard.

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.
