Natural Fashion in African Tribes

While waiting for my turn at the dentist, I read in a magazine about the Surma and Mursi Tribes of Ethiopia. And I was fascinated with their body paint and decorations. Below are pictures by Hans Silvester. I encourage you to buy his book. This would be a wonderful collection at home. I, myself, am thinking of getting myself a copy.



These tribes take natural fashion to a whole new level. But I find it beautiful. They're like... a whole new different creature. A whole new different being.


It's lovely. It brings to mind Miyazaki and forests and unearthly things. And it's inspiring me to draw, to create, and to dream up of stories. Wonderful, wonderful stories.
