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. A peregrine falcon leans to the right on its perch on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. Camel blankets lie in the sand behind the wakir. 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.
