View of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party setting up camp in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. In the near distance a four men and a young boy (centre left) unload couched camels in the midst of a vast flat plain dotted with scattered clumps of vegetation. Three camels stand on the right in a group. In the far background a ridge of low dunes borders the flat along the horizon in the far distance. 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.
