Himba woman with a lolly, Nambia (Andrea Rasetti)

Himba woman with a lolly, Nambia (Andrea Rasetti)

Author Comment:
Himba are a seminomad group of people from Kaokoveld: their woman could be very fascinating, dressed with ornaments made with shells, iron and rawhide and only a miniskirt of goatskin. Himba women grease their skin with a mask of ash, ochre and butter that contrasts the aging; the same mixture is applied on the interlocked hairs. This young woman in a village, typical in her dress and attitude, seems to appreciate a lolly given by a tourist: a strange mixture of two different worlds.
