Description

View of an Arab man using a team of donkeys to operate a sluice gate at a water reservoir in the Al Hasa Oasis. In the foreground a man with a long stick directs a team of donkeys. Ropes are tied from the sluice gate to the donkeys' saddles. In the background another gate sits on the far side of the reservoir.

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.
