Description

View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the near distance members of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party rest with their couched camels on the edge of a depression below a large sand dune. Large bushes grow across the depression, and a few small tufts of vegetation continue up the dune slope to its crest in the far left distance. In the far right two members of the party stand at the edge of the depression. Behind them tracks show the party's path down the high dune slope. This image was taken between December 20, 1948, and January 27, 1949, during which time Wilfred Thesiger stayed with Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Al Ain and joined him on a number of hunting excursions.

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.
