Description

View of a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party standing on a dune in Liwa oasis. One of Wilfred Thesiger's Rashid Bedouin companions stands on the slope of a sand dune next to a clump of qassis (sedge). He stands in profile holding a rifle, and is looking into the far left distance. On the right a further dune rises behind him into a low crest. In the distance beyond an expanse of rolling sand dunes sits below a clear sky. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 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.
