Description
A child (Tutu) standing in the centre of a clearing playing an upright carved wooden drum. The drum has a skin membrane on top and wooden tuning pegs around the side. A child with cloth wrapped around the upper body stands in the foreground watching. In the background groups of people are sat on the ground outside dome-shaped shelters. The shelters are made from branches that are bent into arcs to form a framework that is covered with leaves, and some mats or sheets of bark or woven material have been placed on some of the roofs for extra covering. Metal vessels, a basket and spears are all visible outside the shelters.
