Standing half length profile portrait of Salim bin Ghabaisha, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions, in Ras Al Khaimah Emirate. Salim bin Ghabaisha, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of the Rashid Bedouin, faces towards the left and carries a rifle under his shoulder. He wears a khanjar (dagger) with a cartridge belt and suspenders over his thobe (long shirt), and his long hair hangs down around his shoulders beneath his headscarf. In the distance a far hillside is visible.
