View of a sand dune and a date palm grove in Liwa oasis. A sand dune lies in the foreground, dotted with vegetation. In the salt flat (sabkha) beyond a grove of date palms grows. In the far distance scattered salt bushes grow on the far edge of the plain, below a watchtower that sits on the slope of a far dune overlooking the flat.

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.
