Falconry bridges the past, present and future
Afrah Al Mansoori, Ayesha's aunt, prepares food after a training session in the Abu Dhabi desert, as a falcon rests on its perch. While the food is being prepared in a way that is typical of the traditional Bedouin lifestyle, a parked 4x4 adds a hint of modernity to the scene, high- lighting how falconry bridges the past, present and future for many Emirati families and communities.

تحضّر أفراح المنصوري عمّة عائشة الطعام بعد جلسةٍ تدريبية في صحراء أبوظبي، بينما يجلس الصقر في عشّه. وفيما يتمّ تحضير الطعام على الطريقة البدوية التقليدية، تضيف سيارة الدفع الرباعي المتوقفة لمسةً عصرية إلى المشهد، ملقيةً الضوء على الجسور التي شيّدتها رياضة الصقارة بين الماضي والحاضر والمستقبل لعددٍ من العائلات والمجتمعات الإماراتية.
