A group of three Uduk (Korara) men in a homestead, one dressed in a long patterned textile shirt. The two other men, one of whom is wearing a number of neck strings and possibly charms, are suffering from what appears to be a scrotal hernia. Although Evans-Pritchard briefly visited the Uduk a few miles south of Jebel Wadega (where he had been documenting Jumjum peoples) in an area close to the Khor Ahmar valley, he noted that these men lived southwest of Jebel Kurmuk.
