Description
Holding a ball in one hand and a cylinder in the other, this fine young gentleman looks as though he is aware of his importance in the world. He wears boldly patterned garments in ochre, cream and black against a reddish brown base color. Multiple nose and ear ornaments adorn his youthful face and bracelets lay high on his slender arms. His expression is eager with anticipation of the upcoming events. With his lips parted showing white teeth, he solemnly declares, "Let the celebration begin!" He is ready to take part in the ritual activities he has looked forward to all year. - (PF.3195)
