Abstract / Summary
Bombé and Adamo sat underneath a shelter on a raised platform made of logs. They are are making rope for hunting nets. The shelter is made from branches bent into arches and then covered with leaves and it has an open front and sides. There is another shelter at the right of the image underneath which three metal tins are visible. The large tin is a milk tin but probably containing something else. A child is partly visible standing at the left hand edge of the image and looking at the camera.
