Kibbish, Delta of the Omo-River, Ethiopia - December, 31 2007: A woman from the Surma tribe is cutting scars with a blade into the skin of another Suma woman. The scar patterns are an importand style of body decoration for them. Using a thorn from a bush, patterns of little wounds are carved in the skin. The scars come out when ash is applied to the wounds. Sometimes, the wounds get inflamed, which makes the scars bigger and more irregular.

Description

A woman from the Surma tribe is cutting scars with a blade into the skin of another Suma woman. The scar patterns are an importand style of body decoration for them. Using a thorn from a bush, patterns of little wounds are carved in the skin. The scars come out when ash is applied to the wounds. Sometimes, the wounds get inflamed, which makes the scars bigger and more irregular.

The Surma people live in a remote corner of south-western Ethiopia, virtually untouched by the modern world.

Location: Kibbish Village in the delta of the Omo river, South-Western Ethiopia, close to the border to Sudan.
