The Mursi from the river.
Among the traditional African cultures a healthy and well-built body is useful and as such is also respected and maintained. Men and women use their bodies and decorate it as a loving piece of art, to send signals to convert status or to show skill.
Curved lines of lime, fallen fruit from the ground, the coveted cowrie shells, branded fibbers of shrubs or massive horns of wild boar - the body of this young Africans merge the elements of the earth and back to life. If you look at this beauty you will always find new details. You look at the oldest and most tasteful form of art.
