  • Mursi tribal village woman with poisonous Solanum on shaved head for protection and clay lip-plate inserted in split bottom lip Anisha Shah - Gogobot
Anisha Shah's rating: 5
Locate Mursi deep in tiny jungle villages living in mud huts. Girls split their bottom lip from young age to eventually insert 5 inch clay decorative plates. The same is done in earlobes. The Mursi widely believe it’s a sign of beauty. Breasts are exposed and bodies covered in subcutaneous tattoo markings like raised bumps in patterns, representing the clan. Mursi men are muscular with body markings and usually carry Kalashnikov rifles and Machetes for jungle protection.
