Description

Profile 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. A tribesman of the Junuba Bedouin holds his hand in front of his mouth and faces towards to the left. He wears a thobe (shirt) and an embroidered headscarf that has a whole in it. 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.
