Description

Seated profile portrait of Musallim bin Al Kamam, a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, during the party's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis (likely in the region of Al Humrah sands). Musallim bin Al Kamam, a sheikh of the Musaifar lineage of Rashid Bedouin, sits looking into the far left distance alongside a number of supply bags lying in the sand. He has a trimmed and pointed beard, and wears a patterned ghutra (headscarf) on his head and a light coloured thobe (long shirt). In the background sand dunes stretching into the distance. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 1948.

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.
