A Mursi warrior puts on his finest attire to attend the funeral of a highly revered elder. The young men dress in an alluring style, painting their body in undulating patterns of yellow ocher, wearing their brightest beads, most dramatic feathers and creatively selecting strips of colourful fabrics to wrap around their foreheads and necks. A pair of vivid plastic sunglasses puts a contemporary twist on the look.
