Portrait of an Arab falconer, a retainer in Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, riding a camel with a falcon in the sands surrounding Al Ain. A falconer wearing a ghutra (headscarf) and a thobe (long shirt) kneels atop a tall camel holding a hooded falcon and a camel stick. The camel stands in profile facing towards the right. The sand dune on which the camel stands is ridged with small, secondary dunes.
