Description

View of a Manasir Bedouin encampment near Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting camp in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In a wide expanse of sand a large herd of camels graze in front of two tents. The tents are clad in cloth and large mats made of woven palm. Behind them a long low sand dune runs into the far right distance below a sky dotted with wispy clouds.

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.
