Seated portrait of Muhammad bin Al Jabari, one of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin guides, at a campfire in Ramlat ar Rabbad sands. Muhammad bin Al Jabari, a tribesman of the Awamir Bedouin, sits in the foreground beside a fire. He is holding a long handled pan next to the fire, on which a coffee urn sits. He wears a belt over his thobe (shirt) and a headscarf topped with an 'agal (head rope). A low sand bank sits behind him, and in the far distance more dunes line the horizon.

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.
