View of four Arab men, retainers in Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, resting in the party's hunting camp in the sands near Al Ain. In the foreground three men sit in a circle on the sand. A forth man stands in the middle of the group. Equipment and supplies lie scattered around them. On the right a falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. In the distance the party's camels graze on scattered vegetation growing on rolling sands.

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.
