A shelter made out of cow dung and sticks by the Himba tribespeople. : Stock Photo
The Himba are herdsmen, breeding mainly cattle and goats while leading a semi-nomadic life. They migrate with their herds to the different waterholes from season to season. Clothes, hair and jewellery hold a special meaning and form an important part of their tradition and culture. Women spend many hours on beauty care and grooming every day. They cream their whole body with a mixture of rancid butterfat and ochre, scented with the resin of the Omuzumba shrub. The cream lends the body an intense reddish glow, which reflects the Himba idea of beauty.
