Description

Portrait of animals in Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting camp in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the right foreground a hooded peregrine falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) next to a saluki hunting dog lying in the sand. The saluki is extremely thin and looks back up at the falcon. Behind them blankets and other gear lie in the sand, in which a few large dry bushes grow. 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.
