Description

Portrait of Musallim bin Tafl, a tribesman of the Bayt Kathir Bedouin and one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, standing next to a cluster of saf palms [Nannorhops arabica]. This portrait was taken during the party's journey from Wadi Musallim to Wadi Hawshi, likely in the Wadi al Ghabah.
