Description
View of a Samburu man holding an ox still while another man lines up an arrow with the animal's jugular vein, in order to collect its blood. This is carried out after Samburu circumcisions.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
