Tag search ‘africa’. Lovely portrait. The Afar are a tribe from Ethiopia and surrounding countries.
I found the cap interesting from an anthropologicial pov:
A young Afar girl, not yet married, cos you can see her hair. Later (but not too much), she’ll marry her cousin. As many young girl, she may be infibulated…So the wedding night will start with a knife… That’s the way Afars still do.
