Full length portrait of a man and a young boy standing with a camel in Al Ain oasis. At the far left a young boy holding a camel stick stands next to a man holding holding the head rope of a thoroughbred Batina camel (centre right). The man wears a waistcoat and a cartridge belt over his thobe (long shirt), and a ghutra (headscarf). The camel stands in profile, facing towards the left. It is saddled with an Omani style wooden saddle. In the background is a low rock mound. Trees, bushes and grasses grow in the sand surrounding them. This image was taken during April 6-30, 1948, when Wilfred Thesiger stayed at Al Muwaiji fort in Al Ain as a guest of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
