Description

Full length portrait of one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides standing in a valley on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. In the foreground a man wearing a thobe (long shirt), a ghutra (headscarf) stands with his gun on rock strewn ground beside Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit]. In the background two camels graze behind a tall bush on the left. The high limestone slopes of Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] rise in the right background. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 1948.

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.
