A tethered ox with mottled markings and large upright horns stands in the foreground, with a large byre (luak) in the background. In contrast to his two earlier fieldwork visits in 1930 and 1931 when photographing cattle was viewed suspiciously by the Nuer, Evans-Pritchard took numerous images of them during his later fieldwork during 1935-1936.
