Portrait of Mabkhaut bin Arbain and Salim bin Kabina, members of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, preparing food in the Ramlat ar Rabbad sands. At the left Mabkhaut bin Arbain, a tribesman of the Bayt Gidad lineage of Bayt Kathir Bedouin, sits cross-legged in the sand. He is cradling a bag, possibly a water skin, in his lap. At the right, Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, kneels sideways in the sand. He is pouring water out of a beaten metal bowl into a metal pot in front of him. In the background at the far left a camel is couched in the sand.
