Description
Seated portrait of Wilfred Thesiger taken during his party's journey from the As Saruq sands to Abu Dhabi near the end of his second journey across the Empty Quarter (Rub' al Khali). Wilfred Thesiger kneels in the sand in front of a low ridge of bushes, holding a rifle and a camel stick across his lap. He is wearing a headscarf, a long shirt (thobe), and a khanjar (dagger) in a cartridge belt around his waist.

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.
