  Mursi boy
by sachara

Not only the girls, but also the Mursi boys like to decorate and ornament themselves abundantly by unique face and body paintings They were wearing sticks and peculiar jewelry, made of metal and horns.
Some boys were wearing plugs in their ears to elongate their lobes.

The Mursi are survivors, whose isolated location combined with crises of drought, war, migration, famine and epedemic diseases has shaped their unique identity.
