Description

Seated portrait of a tribesman of the Junuba Bedouin, possibly a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party, in Al Muwaiji near Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain oasis. A man wearing a plain thobe (shirt) and an embroidered headscarf topped with an 'agal (head rope) sits facing forward. He has a trimmed dark beard and holds a rifle and a camel stick. In the distance beyond a large expanse of flat sand runs to the far horizon.

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.
