The picture originates in a set of documents dating from the Eastern Cape Frontier Wars, and is captioned 'A Caffre Woman'. Members of the Foley family were resident in Grahamstown from the early part of the nineteenth century. The sketch is a lifelike depiction of a typical tribeswoman during the subjugation of the Cape colony's eastern frontier.
