Western Africa (southern section): Their People
Challenge has finished
UPDATE: I will be allowing 3 entries per person for this challenge.] As we move (roughly) south thru Africa, the next two challenges will cover the following countries:  Nigeria;  Cameroon;  Eq. Guinea;  Sao Tome;  Gabon;  Congo; and  Angola. It is my sense that very few people have been to many/all of these countries, so I don't think we'll hit the 35-entry maximum. If we do, then I'll probably add more spaces, so everyone who wants can enter. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.

This young man is brandishing a replica eben, a ceremonial sword used by chiefs dancing in homage to the Oba, that he has made as part of a partially UNESCO-funded project to review traditional methods of brasswork (think Benin bronzes, which are actually brass) in Benin City (which confusingly is in Nigeria).
