His Highness Sheikh Suroor graciously sent falcons and falconers from his farm in the desert to the exhibition opening night much to the delight and pleasure of guests. Here Harry May and a handler hold two white gyr falcons in front of Christine's drawing of the founder of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. This life size charcoal drawing was inspired by a photograph of Sheikh Zayed taken by Englishman Wilfred Patrick Thesiger in 1949. The photograph is in the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford.
