Around the world, rites of passage are marked with works of visual art accompanied by music, song, dance and drama. In ethnic cultures, commemoration of these passages is the most common reason objects of significance are made. Emblems are created and exchanged to signify the major stages or turning points such as birth, initiation, marriage, parenting, social status and death.
