Profile portrait of Salim bin Kabina riding a camel in Al Khatam or Al Humrah sands. On the right Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, sits on his camel, which is walking towards the left. Salim bin Kabina wears a dark thobe (shirt) and a ghutra (headscarf) tied closely around his head and neck. In the distance beyond rolling sand dunes stretch out into the distance below a hazy sky.

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.
