Description

Half length seated portrait of Musallim bin Al Kamam, one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, at the southern end of Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet), near Al Qabil. Musallim bin Al Kamam, a sheikh of the Musaifar lineage of Rashid Bedouin, sits on the ground wearing a thobe (shirt) topped with leather suspenders and a cartridge belt and a ghutra (headscarf). He is smiling and holds a rifle in one hand. In the background the limestone cliffs of Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet) rise in the distance.

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.
