Full length profile portrait of a captive white oryx in Dubai. A white Arabian oryx [oryx leucoryx] with long straight horns and a black tail stands in the central courtyard of a house. The sand surrounding the oryx is littered with animal droppings. In the background a child stands in a doorway, and on the far right a piece of wood sits in the sand. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's May 10-18, 1948 stay in Sharjah and Dubai.
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.
