Description

Full length standing portrait of a boy standing in the midst of a covered suq (market) in the city of Sharjah. A boy wearing a thobe (long shirt) and a ghutra (headscarf) stands in the centre of a market thoroughfare. On either side of the boy merchants wait at market stalls backed by buildings. Above the market a shade canopy made from palm fronds has been erected over the thoroughfare.

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.
