Surma tribesmen, Omo Valley, Ethiopia. by Hans Silvester. *During the courtship season, Surma men spend hours perfecting their appearance. They create their principal body decoration by smearing the skin with a mixture of chalk and water and drawing intricate designs with their wet fingertips to expose the skin underneath (Monika Ettlin).
