Like all other peoples in Nigeria,the ibos have a variety of dances which are performed for special purposes.
The dress worn by the boy in this illustration is typical and may be seen in any ibo village when a festival is in progress.A band is tied around the brow and decorated with feathers.The top of the body is usually left naked while the hips are covered by a short skirt of brightly coloured cotton.Around the waist is worn a belt of small coloured cloths.Tiny brass bells are fastened to the ankles and sometimes to the arms and wrists.
