Description

View of a group of men performing a dance at a circumcision ceremony in An Namas. A line of men dance in a circle around a group of three drummers. Some of the men are firing their muskets into the air. A crowd of spectators sits on a nearby roof and on a fence watching the dancers.

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.
