Not Before My Enemies | Digital Watercolor Portrait Painting

“When the leader of the [enemy tribe] came up, and cried out to him to throw down his turban and his life should be spared. The Sheikh, rather than do what, according to Bedouin notions, would have stained his reputation ever after, exclaimed, “I shall not uncover my head before my enemies;” and was immediately killed with the thrust of a lance.”
