CAPTION PRINTED BELOW PICTURE: 'Andamanese peace-making dance - After a fight between two villages there is sometimes a peace-making ceremony. The men of the village which made the last attack erect a screen, against which they stand, while the women beat time with their hands on their thighs. The men of the other party then dance in front of them. Each dancer seizes one of the standing men by the shoulders and leaps up and down before him, giving him a good shaking. After the dance both parties weep together and exchange weapons'
