Description

Half-length seated portrait of one of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's retainers in Al Ain. The man is seated with a rifle under his right arm. He wears a thobe (long shirt) with a headscarf (ghutra) topped with thin black aghal (head ropes). Behind the man is a flat plain of rocky sand, almost bare of vegetation. This image was taken during April 6-30, 1948, when Wilfred Thesiger stayed at Al Muwaiji fort in Al Ain as a guest of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

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.
