View of two people travelling towards a date palm grove in Liwa oasis. In the foreground a large sand flat dotted with a few tufts of vegetation sits below a high sand dune. In the distance on the left a man leads a goat along a ridge towards a date palm grove tucked in a depression beneath the dune on the right. At the centre another man walks with a camel at the edge of the palm grove.

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.
