description
Portrait of an Arab falconer, a retainer in Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, riding a camel with a falcon in the sands surrounding Al Ain. A falconer wearing a ghutra (headscarf) and a thobe (long shirt) topped with a cartridge belt kneels atop a camel. The falconer carries a hooded falcon on a mangalah (cuff) on his arm and steers the camel by its head rope with his other hand. The camel stands in profile on a sand dune, facing towards the right. The sand dune on which the camel stands is ridged with small, secondary dunes.

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.
