Description

Standing full length profile portrait of a thoroughbred camel on an Abu Dhabi island. A large thoroughbred camel stands in profile facing towards the right. The camel belongs to an Abu Dhabi sheikh and has been left to pasture on this island. The ground beneath the camel is a small patch of bare sand dotted with camel droppings. In the background tufts of grass and small shrubs grow across the flat sands into the far distance. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's week and a half long sailing trip around the Abu Dhabi Islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Nahyan and their retainers in March 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.
