Wearing flowers around their waists and necks, Odumase girls parade during the Dipo festival as their rite of passage into womanhood. They announce they are now of marrying age and seek to make a match. Attakora Yeboah portrays them with the characteristic shaved head and kente skirt, holding pots over their heads with medicinal plants used for the rituals. Painting with acrylics, Yeboah shares timeless Ghanaian customs through his unique impressionist style.
