A three quarter length full face portrait of a man wearing a white shirt and skull cap, as well as a wrist watch. He is described as an Atuot man, and may well be the Atuot servant described by Evans-Pritchard as with him during his first field trip to Nuerland in 1930, and who spoke both Nuer and some Arabic, through which he conversed with Evans-Pritchard. The Atuot lived to the south of the Nuer and are a linguistically and culturally related people to both the Nuer and Dinka.

In The Nuer (Oxford University Press, 1940) page 10, E. E. Evans-Pritchard notes that 'next day was devoted to erecting my tent and trying to persuade the Nuer, through my Atwot servant who spoke Nuer and some Arabic, to remove my abode to the vicinity of shade and water, which they refused to do.'
