Description:John Taso draws the tuu kon 'Taboo Sand Drawing'. It is an image of two people having intercourse. The story is about a man and a woman who have an affair. Afterwards the mandraws the tattoo of the woman in the ground and her husband discovers it. He finds out who had slept with his wife and kills him. This story is similar in parts to the Tengweli sand drawing, but is said to be a completely different story.
