Description

Half length portrait of the Imam of Oman's representative in Al Muwaiji near Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain oasis. The man has a long thick grey beard and he stands facing forward, holding a rifle and camel stick in one hand. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt over his thobe (shirt) and a white headscarf. The Imam of Oman's representative accompanied Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party from 'Izz to Al Muwaiji.
