Description

View of a Manasir Bedouin encampment near Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting camp in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the foreground two Manasir men stand to the right of a large tent, behind which a number of camels are standing. The tent is made of woven palm mats sewn together in long strips. In the background behind them a young girl in a black abaya walks towards a group of camels. Further behind a low expanse of sand rises into a dune in the far right distance.

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.
