Description

Portrait of one of Sheikh Shakhbut bin Sultan Al Nahyan's retainers kneeling in the sand on the Corniche in Abu Dhabi. The man holds a rifle in his right hand. He is wearing a headscarf secured with a dark 'agal (head rope) and wears a silver embossed dagger (khanjar) on a belt over his shirt (thobe). In the background the ocean stretches into the distance behind him.
