Description

View of a peregrine falcon belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party resting in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the left foreground a peregrine falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. A falconer's mangalah (cuff used to carry the falcon) and the falcon's hood lies in the sand next to the wakir. On the right a pile of gear lies in the sand in front of a large bush. In the far background tufts of qassis (sedge) and other small vegetation grow scattered over rolling sands into the far distance. This image was taken between December 20, 1948, and January 27, 1949, during which time Wilfred Thesiger stayed with Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Al Ain and joined him on a number of hunting excursions.

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.
