Pomp and Pageantry. This picture of King Oti Boateng I, is reminiscent of the hey days of the Juaben monarchy. Behind Nana, are his treasure boxes, ( Apem Adaka ), said to contain gold dust, of an appreciable measure.
All due credit to the photographer.

Ntahera horns of Juaben. These now, domiciled at Koforidua, are the original Juaben Ntahera. In addition to Ntahera, the King of Juaben possesses other horn sets or ensembles such as Amoakwa ( don't see much of them these days ), Nkontwema and others.
