Description

Calabash inscribed with figures of animals (giraffes, etc.). Style of drawings is not Bushman, which one would expect at Ghanzi, rather that of Barotse, also visited by the expedition. For Bushman type of decoration, see 32-10-3, 32, 105; and cf., for Barotse style, similar honey-bear pots in Holub, Sieben Jahre in Sudafrika, II.
