A Collection of Drawings commissioned for the research project and made by an assistant, member of the community, constitutes approximately 50 color drawings (crayon, pencil, pen) describing scenes from everyday and ritual life of the Ovahimba. A sub-collection of drawings figures images of different types of cattle accompanied by descriptions and taboos linked to each type, and doubled with photographs of these same types.
