Standing full length portrait of an Arab man, one of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's falconers, holding a peregrine falcon (shahin) in the sands near Al Ain. A falconer in a light coloured thobe (long shirt) topped with a khanjar (dagger) on a leather belt holds a peregrine falcon on a mangalah (cuff) on one arm. The falcon wears a leather burqa (hood) decorated with a strip of leather. In the far distance beyond small shrubs and bushes grow on a vast expanse of sand.
