In southern Ethiopia's Omo region, a Hamar child peeks out from under her mother's shawl. The Hamar are among the most elaborately attired of Ethiopia's ethnic groups. Daily dress may include piles of beaded necklaces and metal bracelets, beaded belts and headbands, leather skirts or loincloths, and elaborate, sculptured hairstyles.
