Description: Slide of a man performing Scottish caber throwing, which is a Scottish athletic event that is achieved through accuracy and precision, at the Texas Folklife Festival. The man is in the center of the image dressed in a kilt. His knees are slightly bent and his hands are cradling a tall, wooden pole, known as a caber, that has about the same diameter as his head and about twice or so his height. Numerous people are gathered behind him, watching him lift the caber.
