Close up profile portrait of a thoroughbred Omani camel belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. The camel has thin short hair and poses in profile looking towards the right. It is wearing a chain halter, a woven neck rope and has a thick black head rope. A piece of cord has been tied from the camel's halter to its neck. 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.
