Photographed in 1975 in the East India State of Bihar, this photograph depicted a native Bihari man, who had assumed a squatting position, as he was in the process of turning a clay pot on a manpowered turntable. You are able to see some of his fished pots off to his left, as well as a number of his fellow villagers milling around, absorbed in their own daily tasks. In this particular view, he was using a thick bamboo pole to accelerate the spinning turntable. See PHIL 19078 showing his hands-on manipulation of the forming pot. The photograph was captured by a Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Bureau of State Services staff member, during one of the smallpox immunization-related trips to that region of the world.
