View of a large sand dune in the Al Qafa' or As Saruq region north of Liwa oasis. A large dune with deeply ridged slopes and a crescent-shaped crest fills the view. Small tufts of vegetation grow in a line along the bottom of the dune. Further behind a bush grows below a ridge in the middle of the dune, while the rest of the dune is bare of vegetation.

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.
