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.
