Description

View of a large building in the city of Shibam. Painted decorations cover the plaster walls of the building. Railings and spires run along the edges of the roof. The building's windows are filled with carved wooden window screens.

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.
