Profile portrait of Warad, Wilfred Thesiger's saluki hunting dog, standing on a dune in Liwa oasis. In the foreground Warad, the travelling party's hunting dog, stands on a bare dune facing towards the left. In the distance beyond two groves of date palms, cultivated by local Bani Yas villagers, grow in neat rows in a depression. Behind the grove high sand dunes fill the landscape in all directions. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Al Ain to Liwa oasis, Al Dhafra and Baynunah sands in November and December 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.
