Description

The black and white image is of four people standing before a wall. The man on the facing left is taller and wears a long sleeved shirt and dark wrap skirt. The remaining four are shorter, two men and two women, all wearing pubic coverings. The structure behind them appears to be made of adobe and has a thatched roof.
