The fancy paint job on the ox cart included the yoke on the oxen's necks. The oke seems to be lashed onto the oxen's heads, with the leather bonnet, which i presume prevents the straps from rubbing and irritating the oxen.
It looks to me as though the oxen could have limited visibility with the head gear that they wear. Oh well, they probably to not need to see much besides the big stick held by the farmer that I showed yesterday.
This week we have photos of the street art of Valparaiso, Chile, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
