Kara Men body painting by Omo River, Ethiopia by Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher

Kara Men body painting by Omo River, Ethiopia

After the harvest, when the Kara have leisure time, courtship season begins. Young men go down to the river bank to paint elaborate designs on their bodies using a mixture of chalk and water. The designs will wear off after a day of dancing and be repainted the next morning.
