Description
Portrait of six trained falcons and two salukis belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party resting in the sands surrounding Al Ain. In the centre foreground a saker (hurr) falcon perches on a wakir (block). Behind her five peregrine (shahin) falcons, four of which are wearing hoods, also sit on blocks. Further behind them two saluki hunting dogs rest in the sand beside a clump of vegetation.

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.
