Portrait of Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan with a number of men on a dhow (sailboat) in the Abu Dhabi islands. At the far right, Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan stands on the deck of a sailboat, looking at a number of people seated on the deck. He is wearing a white headscarf topped with a thick dark 'agal (head rope) and a dark bisht (outer robe). Behind him a man holds on to the boat's awning frame with two hands. A long narrow flag flies from a post at the back of the awning. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's week and a half long sailing trip around the Abu Dhabi Islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Nahyan and their retainers in March 1948.

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.
