Description

View of a group of farmers using a team of donkeys to thresh hay on a farm outside the city of Tarim. The donkeys are being driven over the hay, which is laid out on the ground. Weights attached to the donkeys help to thresh the grain. The female labourer is wearing a very tall straw hat. In the background a high city wall with dotted with guard towers runs along the base of a steep rock escarpment behind them.

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.
