Description

A beautiful smile from a member of Namibia's Himba tribe. The women cover themselves with otjize, a mixture of butter fat and ochre. The mixture gives their skins a reddish glow. This symbolizes earth's rich red color and the blood that symbolizes life, and is consistent with the Himba ideal of beauty.
