A woman from the Hamar tribe in southern Ethiopia's Omo Valley poses to show her armfuls of ornamental bracelets as a curious toddler looks on.

Omo Valley is home to several tribes known for their striking body adornments, including colorful clothing, braided hair, and painted skin, as well as piercings, tattoos, scarification, and lip plates.
