A full length full face portrait of a married Nuer Dok woman wearing a leather beaded apron standing in a millet garden with the crop very tall, presumably close to harvesting, at Ler village near Adok. She is holding a spear-head knife in one hand, presumably to harvest some of the crop. The harvesting of millet was done towards the end of the rains around the beginning of October, which is the date Evans-Pritchard arrived in Nuerland in 1936.
