Description
Seated portrait of one of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's falconers sitting with a peregrine falcon in the Al Khatam sands near Al Ain. On the left a peregrine falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. Behind the falcon a young Arab man with a moustache, one of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's falconers, sits in the sand holding onto the wakir with one hand. He wears a patterned ghutra (headscarf) draped over his head and shoulders, and a thobe (long shirt) topped with a cartridge belt and khanjar (dagger). In the far background trees grow atop a slope of 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.
