Description

View of one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides standing in a valley on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] mountain. In the foreground a man wearing a thobe (long shirt) and ghutra (headscarf) stands on the floor of a rocky valley. On the left a few bushes grow beside a large rock shelf projecting out of the valley floor. High limestone walls rise on either side of the narrow valley and into the far distance. Wilfred Thesiger spent a week on Jebel Hafeet [Jabal Hafit] hunting Arabian Tahr [Hemitragus jayakari] with Arab and Bedouin guides in April 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.
