Description
Seated portrait of Wilfred Thesiger taken by an unknown photographer in the region surrounding Al Ain / Buraimi Oasis. Wilfred Thesiger kneels in the sand, resting his hands on his thighs and holding a camel stick. He wears a khanjar (dagger) on a cartridge belt with leather suspenders over his thobe (shirt) and an embroidered headscarf. Behind him on the left a dry bush grows in the sand.

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.
