*Please note: I am always very cautious of objectifying our people, especially the Himba, and not perpetuating human zoos. However, I hope these pics can at least teach us (me at least) the specifics of the detail of Himba beauty routines, styles, adornment and some of the functions I had not known before. For eg, that thick, metal ankle bracelets also work to protect against animal bites. If anything, I admire their styles greatly as they are in line with all diasporic African traditions, from hair to jewelry.
I freak every time I see these women. Love.
this deserves waay more notes
Mind-blowing oil paintings by Austrian/Jewish painter, LUDWIG DEUTSCH, LEON GEROME & RUDOLF ERNST in the late 1800s:The subject, “The Palace Guard” were depictions of North African medieval Muslims, THE MOORS, who settled in & ruled Northern Africa and invaded and conquered many parts of what we would now consider “Southern Europe (Spain, Portugal, France & Southern Italy-ala Sicily)” for nearly 800 years, from as early as the 7th to the 15th century. Their profound, cultural legacy, influence & what they left behind( Such as the great monuments, the Alhambra and the Mezquita) is evident on modern day spanish architecture, art, music and traditions. All but ignored now largely by both Arab and European world history, The Moors played a significant role during the shaping of prehistory in their early settlement.
