Portrait of Salim bin Kabina, a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, and a tribesman of the Wahiba Bedouin at a well in the Wadi 'Andam. At the far left Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, stands at the opening of the well pulling on a rope. Opposite him a tribesman of the Wahiba Bedouin, wearing a white wraparound skirt, is also hauling water from the well. On the right camels crowd around a mud trough, drinking water.

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.
