Macua woman

 

 

 

 

In South-Africa we met a woman with a face painted white like a mask, which is known as Mussiro. She was an immigrant. Especially Macua women in Northern Mozambique use it, not only because it is good for their skin, but the mask itself is considered beautiful. They also wear it to show they are true Macua.

Tutu

Last week Desmond Tutu visited the Netherlands. Using his charming smile you could not have missed him on Dutch television. Yet I believe that this 81-year-old man is burning deep inside.
