A clay ox as made by Nuer children, complete with ma gut trained left horn, placed on a stool standing on a table with papers scattered on it. The room in which the photograph is taken looks out through a large window onto a courtyard with an overhanging corrugated iron roof and a woven grass perimeter fence, seen as a backdrop in other object images. It is likely to be the American Mission station at Nasir.
