Description
Half length portrait of tribesman of the Manasir Bedouin in Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. A young man with chin-length curly hair and a thick beard stands looking into the far right foreground. He wears a patterned ghutra (headscarf) tied around his head and draped down over the back of his neck and a plain light thobe (long shirt). In the distance behind him clumps of vegetation grow scattered across the sand. 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.
