A beehive-shaped wattle and mud hut thatched with grass laid on the rafters, probably in a village homestead (gol). A woman with young child on her lap is sitting in the doorway with a boy standing next to her, in front of a woven grass door. Married people and small children were the last to leave the village settlements in the dry season, joining the rest of the cattle and youths at the cattle camps near rivers and lagoons as grazing and water inland became scarce.
