Accession Number:
Two youths stand at the entrance to a mud-walled enclosure, across which can be seen a shrine, consisting of a large and set of smaller stones with traces of libation offerings on them, as well as a number of poles and white flags. Behind the boys is a large woven tassel also attached to a pole. This is possibly a shrine of Nyakang, one of several dotted about Shilluk country.
