Clad in tight, beaded corsets that indicate their position in the age set system, two Dinka friends walk among the herd. First fitted at puberty, the color-coded corsets are everyday wear for most Dinka males. They are sewn in place and removed only when the wearer is promoted to a new age set. The red-and-blue corset on the right is worn by men of fifteen to twenty-five years of age, and the yellow-and-blue by those over thirty, indicating that the wearer is ready for marriage. Each Dinka herder is named after his "namesake ox," which he receives at puberty and adopts as a soulmate for life. Sudan. Men of the African Ark calendar, Pomegranate
