Description

Full length profile portrait of a thoroughbred Omani camel in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. A saddled thoroughbred Omani camel belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan stands in profile in sand, facing towards the left. Its mouth is slightly open and its head rope hangs down from its head onto the sand. In the distance beyond small tufts of vegetation grow scattered across a vast flat plain that stretches into the far horizon. This image was taken between December 20, 1948, and January 27, 1949, during which time Wilfred Thesiger stayed with Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Al Ain and joined him on a number of hunting excursions.

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.
