View of three Arab men, retainers in Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, standing in the party's hunting camp in the sands near Al Ain. In the foreground two men stand on the left holding rifles. Behind them another man stands in the midst of piles of camp equipment and supplies. On the right a falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. In the distance beyond scattered vegetation grows on a vast dry plain. In the far distance high cliffs, likely those of Jebel Hafeet (Jabal Hafit), rise high above the horizon in the far background.

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.
