Description: A view of the pyramid of Deng Kur, built by the Nuer prophet Ngundeng (d.1906) at the end of the 19th century, and added to by his son. An important political symbol of Nuer resistance to colonial rule, the pyramid was eventually blown-up by the administration in 1928 on the orders of colonial officer Percy Coriat, shortly after he took this photograph.
