Description

Seated half-length portrait of a man in front of a tent in a camp near Al Ain, taken during Wilfred Thesiger's journey from Abu Dhabi to Al Ain. The man wears a ghutra (headscarf) topped with thick agal (head ropes) and a khanjar (dagger) over his thobe (shirt). He is drinking from a metal cup. Behind him is a large black hair tent. The tent is raised on poles and divided by cloth panels into a number of separate interior sections.

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.
