Description
Seated portrait of Salim bin Habarut, a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, at the southern end of Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet), near Al Qabil. Salim bin Habarut, a sheikh of the Junuba Bedouin, sits turned towards the right. He wears a dark coloured thobe (shirt), an embroidered headscarf topped with an 'agal (head rope), and holds a rifle against his shoulder. In the background the limestone cliffs of Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet) rise in the distance.

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.
