Accession Number:
An upper body group portrait of three youths wearing head and neck ornaments including metal disk pendants. The youth to the left has his hair plastered with ash and is leaning on a wooden spear. It was almost certainly taken during 1935, and the wearing of white body cloths suggests that they may have been associated with the mission at Nasir.
