Hamar woman between cows during bull jumping ceremony

A graceful gait, an elegant long-limbed stance or this spontaneous pose under the photographer's gaze all exude poise and dignity even in the midst of the weekly market bustle.

 

Omalle, a married Hamar women, vogued this pose against a painted turquoise wall at the weekly market in Turmi, a small Hamar frontier town in the remote Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region of southwestern Ethiopia. Shot near the end of a long dry season regularly exceeding 40°C in the shade.

 

Elegantly adorned with a traditional cowrie-shell collar, seeded necklaces, copper bracelets, glass-beaded goatskin clothing and iron marital torques. The upper torque with phallic protrusion is wrapped in leather, signifying first-wife status. The torques are worn for life.

 

The hairstyle consists of long, tightly twisted strands rubbed in a mixture of fresh cow butterfat, ground red ochre and tree resin gathered from the lower Omo River Basin.

 

The ubiquitous chewing stick favoured by peoples of the lower Omo Valley serves as a natural toothbrush and dental floss all in one. Another edition of this photograph appears in an article on the chewing stick in AfroStyleMag, Issue 7, 2012.

 

A short-cropped version also appears as the Lonely Planet’s cover photograph for Ethiopia & Djibouti, 6th edition, 2017.

An elderly Hamar woman with cane at the weekly market in Turmi, a small Hamar frontier town in the remote Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region of Ethiopia. Adorned with seeded necklaces, brass bracelets, and goatskin clothing.

 

The Hamar are semi-nomadic herders and farmers who live in small settlements or hamlets scattered across the hills, plains, wooded riverines and dry thorny bush terrain in the lower Omo River Valley near Ethiopia's border with northern Kenya and South Sudan.

Spottet in the town of Hamar. Has to say the third gen Galant is a great looking 70's Sedan. I love the design.
