Infant of Mmaniaye. Note the markings which, it is my guess, signify ethnicity and therefore have some historical meaning. These are made, I think, with kaolinite, a clay used for skin marking and to combat digestive disorder. Mmaniaye, Ghana, 2007. Photo by Stan Thompson.

Cocoa sprayers in Mmaniaye, Ghana, 2008. I don't know if these were government employees. My understanding is that in Ghana, spraying is usually done by employees of the Cocobod (http://www.cocobod.gh/)
