Description
Portrait of a peregrine falcon, belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, resting in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. On the right a peregrine falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand with its body facing forward and its head turned to the left. On the left a few camel blankets lie in the sand. In the distance beyond low vegetation and a few far trees grow across a flat plain. 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.
