Seated portrait of Sheikh Mubarak bin Mohammed Al Nahyan kneeling in the sand next to one of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's retainers. A young Sheikh Mubarak bin Mohammed Al Nahyan (right) kneels in the sand next to one of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's retainers. They each hold a rifle in their right hand and wear a khanjar (dagger) tucked in a cartridge belt over their thobe (long shirt). In the background is a sand flat bare of vegetation, and in the far distance a line of trees. 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.
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.
