A portrait of two women (identified as Nayawanda wiri Rikita and wiri Rikita, i.e. Nayawanda a daughter of Prince Rikita (son of Gbudwe) and another daughter of Prince Rikita) wearing textile (roko) and barkcloth (agbaya) aprons. Both have cicatrice patterns on their torso, arms and face. The daughter to the right is wearing a straw hat with unwoven grass rim, and has a magic whistle (kura) and two keys hanging from a leather belt, as well as an arbaic-style charm around her neck.

Nayawanda wiri Rikita, wiri Rikita
There are two photographs (exposures 4 & 7) missing from the A.II film, both of which were published as Plate III & IV in Evans-Pritchard's article "The Dance" Africa: Journal of the International African Institute , Vol.1, No.4 (Oct., 1928) p.456, with the caption "Men Dancing" & "The Dance". They were evidently sent to the publisher of Africa and not returned. This article drew upon his first fieldwork expedition of 1927, which provides a date of 1927 for this film number.
