Boy in Cové, Benin

    Newer Older

    I found this little boy in Cové, Benin, at an Egungun ceremony. The scarification which you can see in the face is used for identification of ethnic groups, families, individuals, but also to express personal beauty.

    See the other version of this little boy ...
