Mumuilas tribe girl with her necklace - Angola

    Newer Older

    This tribe is one of the most beautiful i've seen: Mumuilas (or Muhilla ) live in south Angola, and are very shy with foreigners, as they do not see any tourists in the area! The girl on the picture wears a giant necklace made of hundreds of little necklaces of beads and ostrich eggs, and everything is covered with a mix of mud, cow dungs, and herbs to give a nice perfume. The girl wears this huge necklace as she has entered a new age category. She will keep it for years night and day, before being married. On her hair, the same mix!
