Chief Sakite of Manya Krobo with entourage 

Formal group portrait of paramount chief Sakite of Manya Krobo in what is today the Eastern Region of Ghana. He reigned from 1867 up to his death on 29 January 1892.

The photo shows a combination of traditional and colonial symbolic elements. On the one hand we see the umbrella and the staffs of office held by several persons, on the other the chain and medal, and the sword, which were received by the chief from the British colonial government. The necklace, badge and sword were presented to him by the British Governor for his merits in the 1873-74 Asante-war. The sword had an inscription stating
