Description

Portrait of a young Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and a man in Al Muwaiji near Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain. In the foreground a man and a baby sit on a carpet in sand. The baby is Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the son of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and at that time one year old. The man on the right, wearing a light coloured thobe (shirt) and a checked ghutra (headscarf) topped with an 'agal (head rope), is adjusting the baby's thobe.
