Nana Akosua Akyaamaa III, the Queen of Juaben ( Dwaben ), known in Twi as
Dwabenhemaa, exchanging greetings with the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II
at a Kumasi durbar.

The Okuapehene, Oseadeeyo Addo Dankwa III, riding in a palanquin. Nana, is on his
way to the main durbar grounds at Akropong, known as Mpeniase ( Hope I'm right ).
Seated also in his palanquin, immediately infront of him, is a child soul-washer, known as
the Okuapehene's Okra or soul-representative. This may be a borrowed Akwamu tradition.
