Description in published source : p. 35: "3. Glen near Beersheba, Caledon River, Smithfield, O.F.S. 1/5 lin." "The same folk as in plate 2 [no. 117]. The colours are also the same and the animal has red wounds painted on him. The white-turbaned figures have reddened faces, and the kaross or robe has been cut so that the animal tails are pleasantly grouped. The brown hat-like signs are probably later, we have no idea as to their meaning." (Goodwin)
