EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to the vibrant streets of Calabar, Nigeria in 1956. A Nigerian dancer from the Efik tribe takes center stage as she gracefully concludes a traditional dance performance for none other than The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh during their Royal Tour. The Ntimi, the supreme ceremonial dance of the women of Calabar, is reserved for momentous public occasions. As our eyes fixate on this mesmerizing dancer frozen in time, we can't help but notice two significant elements of her striking costume. Clutched delicately between her lips is a vivid red feather symbolizing silence and reverence towards Her Majesty. This small yet powerful gesture showcases deep respect and admiration. Equally intriguing is the gourd artfully manipulated by the dancer's skilled hands. This seemingly ordinary object carries profound meaning as it becomes a vessel for conveying messages of unwavering loyalty to both tradition and royalty. This photograph encapsulates not only an extraordinary cultural moment but also highlights the significance of West African traditions that have been passed down through generations. It serves as a testament to the rich tapestry woven by different cultures around the world. Preserved by Daily Mirror's Memory Lane Prints collection, this image invites us to reflect upon history while celebrating diversity and unity across borders—a timeless reminder that transcends mere commercial value or profit-driven motives.
