This photograph shows a rear view of two Xhosa men dressed for a tribal dance. Their bead-work is also very elaborate and plentiful, but much more restrained, especially in colour, and they wear the straight cotton cloth kilt of an adult man decorated with black braid appliques. Adult female dress is very similar, but married women wear a very full cotton skirt which is cut on the bias, and cover their breasts with a cloth apron tied around the neck.
