Description

Portrait of a peregrine falcon (shahin), belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, resting in the sands near Al Ain. A peregrine falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. The peregrine faces towards the near left. A falconer's mangalah (cuff) and the falcon's burqa (hood) lies in the sand at the base of the wakir.
