Standing profile portrait of Wilfred Thesiger wearing Arab dress in Dubai. Wilfred Thesiger stands on the rooftop terrace of a house in Dubai, facing towards the far right. He leans on the balcony railing, which is made of carved wood. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt and suspenders over his light coloured thobe (shirt) and a ghutra (headscarf) topped with an 'agal (head rope). In the distance behind him wind towers top the roofs of nearby houses.

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.
