Description

This group is a mixture of married Luo women, young girls and children, posed in a line standing and seated, at Karungu in south Nyanza. Here the use of skin or fibre aprons (olemo), armlets (minyonge) and bead necklaces (tik ng’ut) is very evident, and in fact some girls and women have adopted a whole waist skin wrap.

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.
