Description

Full length portrait of a man standing in a Dubai street. In the foreground a man wearing a khanjar (dagger) on a belt over his thobe (long shirt) pauses on a Dubai street next to a tilting fence made of palm fronds. The man has his hands at his side and is leaning on a camel stick. In the background a high tower rises above the fence behind him. Further back another man stands in the street.

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.
