Photographer's Note

The Maasai are famous for drinking a mixture of cattle blood and milk during ceremonial rites.
An arrow is shot at close range to punture the jugular vein of the cow. The blood is drawn into a skin gourd and later mixed with milk to be drunk by the gathering. The animal is not left to bleed but is carefully tended to, till it fully heals.
