Description

Close up portrait of an Arab man, a retainer in Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, in the sands near Al Ain. The man sits in the sand, looking towards the near left foreground. He wears an 'agal (head rope) over his patterned ghutra (headscarf), which hangs down over his thobe (shirt) on one side. In the background a tree and vegetation grows in the sand.

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.
