View of a dhow (sailboat) sailing by the beach in the city of Dubai. In the foreground three small waves roll up on the beach. In the distance men sail in a small dhow, likely a fishing dhow, along the shoreline. Behind them the sea stretches out in a flat calm 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.
