actual image size: 21cm x 32cm


Seated portrait of Musallim bin Al Kamam of the Rashid resting near Al Qabil at the southern end of the mountain Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet). Musallim bin Al Kamam, a sheikh of the Musaifar lineage of Rashid Bedouin, sits on the ground holding a camel stick. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt and leather suspenders over his thobe (shirt) and a dark embroidered headscarf. In the distance behind him trees and bushes grow on a flat plain below Jabal Hafit (Jebel Hafeet), which rises in the far background.

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.
