Three-quarter length portrait of Salim bin Kabina, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin companions, resting in the Al Batin sands near Liwa oasis. Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, is lounging in the sand, propped up on his right elbow. He is wearing a patterned loincloth, a beaded belt, and arm bracelet, and looks off into the far distance.
