Description

Seated portrait of one of Wilfred Thesiger's Arab guides on a stoney plain below Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. The man sits on stoney ground. He wears a light coloured thobe (long shirt) and a patterned headscarf (ghutra). Around his waist he wears a cartridge belt attached to leather bandoliers, and in his right hand he holds a khanjar (dagger). In the background the stoney ground is bare of vegetation. In the far distance a line of trees grows along the bottom of Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit]. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 1948.
