Standing full length 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 poses in profile facing towards the right. It is wearing a wooden Omani saddle and a chain halter and neck rope, which is attached to a thick black head rope. The sand below the camel is dotted with small growths of vegetation. 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.
