Three-quarter length portrait of a Naim sheikh standing in front of a cannon outside Qasr Al Hosn fort in Abu Dhabi. The Naim sheikh wears a ghutra (headscarf) tied in Bedouin style and a suit jacket over his thobe (ankle-length shirt) under his ceremonial bisht (robe). The walls of Qasr Al Hosn fort stand on the left in the background behind him.
