I like this image because you can see the attached head dressing worn by dancers which secures the wooden ritual object to the head. As mentioned in my earlier blog post, Art & Art History – Representing the Spirit of Chi Wara;
Dances are performed by young men in pairs during the time of planting, to ensure germination and a good harvest.
