|Bronze sculptures - female figures in bronze by South African artist Jean Doyle|
The Krobo of West Africa mark the passage of girls into womanhood by performing a series of rituals known as Dipo. This ceremony officially presents Krobo girls as women in the community.
Adorned with layers of glass beads and swathed in printed and hand-woven fabric, the girls perform a series of dances, the most energetic being "Adzewale". Waving cow tail flywhisks, the participants graduate to the jubilant ululation of their mothers.
