Seated portrait of a tribesman of the Junuba Bedouin, one of the retainers of Sulaiman bin Hamyiar, in the region west of the Hamrat ad Duru. The man kneels in the sand facing forward with his hands resting on his thighs. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt over his thobe (shirt) and an embroidered headscarf. This man was sent by Sulaiman bin Hamyiar to accompany Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party from Al Hubi village to Al Ain. Sulaiman bin Hamyiar is a sheikh of the Bani Riyam tribe which occupies the region surrounding Jabal Akhdar.
