You've heard of Lourdes but have you heard of Awhum? This site in Nigeria's south-central Enugu State is a waterfall and a cave, and the center of much Christian healing belief in the area. It even houses a monastery.

The Awhum dress is elegant and cascading, with colors and vertical lines reminiscent of the luminescence and erosion-wrought scarification of the Awhum cave walls.
