Description
Standing full length portrait of an Arab falconer, a member of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, holding a peregrine falcon in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the foreground falconer wearing a light coloured thobe (long shirt) topped with a cartridge belt and khanjar (dagger) stands in a patch of bare sand. The man holds a large peregrine falcon on a mangalah (cuff) on one hand, and leans on a camel stick in his other hand. The falcon is blinded with a leather hood. In the distance behind the falconer tufts of qassis (sedge) and other vegetation grow on a sand flat below a sky streaked with sparse clouds.

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.
