An Okorosie or Okoroshi masquerade of a character called Onyejuwe (Spellbound). The masquerader is wearing a white ‘female’ face mask with an elaborate superstructure on top consisting of carved white heads and horn-like projections. The face of the mask consists of a high forehead with a black line in the centre, slit eyes, nose and large open mouth painted black, black scarification lines on the cheeks. The costume consists of layers of cloths and rows of seed anklets around the calves. Onyejuwe is dancing with arms stretched out and there is another masquerader behind wearing a light coloured cloth and trousers. In the background, there are spectators watching the masquerade.
