Description

Upper body portrait of one of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's Bedouin retainers outside Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain. A smiling man wears a thobe (long shirt) and a headscarf (ghutra) topped with thin black aghal (head ropes) stands in front of the walls of Al Muwaiji fort. He holds a rifle against his left shoulder. This image was taken during April 6-30, 1948, when Wilfred Thesiger stayed at Al Muwaiji fort in Al Ain as a guest of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

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.
