Description
Seated profile portrait of Salim bin Kabina, one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, in the region surrounding Al Ain / Buraimi Oasis. Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, sits facing towards the right, holding a rifle across his lap. He wears a cartridge belt with a khanjar (dagger) over his thobe (shirt) and a headscarf topped with an 'agal (head rope). Beneath his headscarf, his long hair falls down his chest in a loose braid.

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.
