Portrait of Wilfred Thesiger sitting in the Wadi al 'Ayn. Wilfred Patrick Thesiger kneels in soft sand in front of a dry bush, holding a rifle in one hand. He is wearing a silver-sheathed dagger on a cartridge belt over his thobe (shirt), and his head is covered by a headscarf. The rifle is covered in a leather sleeve. This portrait was taken by Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin travelling companion, Salim bin Kabina.
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.
