Portrait of Salim bin Kabina, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions, standing in Al Khatam or Al Humrah sands south of Al Ain. Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands in the near right foreground on sand rippled by secondary dunes. He carries a rifle, in a tasselled case, over his shoulder and holds a camel stick. Wind blows against him from the left. In the distance beyond low crescent shaped dunes, dotted with scattered tufts of qassis (sedge), stretch out to the horizon beneath a vast cloudless sky.
