Description

Seated portrait of Wilfred Thesiger taken by an unknown photographer in the region surrounding Al Ain / Buraimi Oasis. Wilfred Thesiger sits in the sand, resting his arm on his knee and holding a camel stick. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt with leather suspenders over his thobe (shirt) and an embroidered headscarf. Behind him a vast flat plain stretches out into the distance.
