Photograph of notable Zulus. There are men standing in a row with two smaller groups of men sitting on the ground in front of them. They are wearing loinclothes and most have an isicoco, a band of hair and grass woven onto the heads of married Zulu men. Many are holding a stick. There is a large tree behind them. Most of these men were relatives of Cetshwayo, the King of the Zulu Kingdom at the time of the Anglo-Zulu War (1879). Others were Zulu Chiefs or representatives of neighbouring tribes.
