Description

View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party descending a dune in Al Batin sands during their journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali) from Al Dhafra sands to Liwa oasis. The man, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, is riding his camel down a steep dune slope. He is followed by a baggage camel, which is tethered to his mount. The sand below the dune is dotted with small shrubs, and a ridge of high, wind-swept dunes rises in the distance beyond.

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.
