Description

Portrait of two Afar (Asaimara Danakil) warriors, standing, wearing knives across their waists from which hang leather tassels denoting how many men each has killed. The man on the left is Hamdo Ouga, a young Asaimara chief who was killed by warriors of the rival Adoimara Danakil tribe a few days after this photograph was taken.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
