Description

Seated half length portrait of Salim bin Kabina, one of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling companions, at Al Muwaiji near Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain. Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, sits with his body turned to the right, his head facing forward. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt and suspenders over his thobe (shirt) and a dark embroidered headscarf. His long hair hangs down around his shoulders.

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.
