Description

Profile portrait of a peregrine falcon, belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, resting in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. A peregrine falcon perches in profile on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. The peregrine faces towards the left, its wings folded along its chest. In the far background a few bushes grow on a slope of soft sand.

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.
