View of two small boats beached on Shindagha beach in Dubai. In foreground a domed fishing trap sits in the sand on the far left. In the central foreground a small boat, possibly a rowboat, sits on the sand with its bow pointing towards ocean. Further behind a man stands next to a similar boat, beside which a small basket and some clothes sit in the sand. In the distance beyond the sea stretches out empty and uninterrupted 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.
