So a lip plate is installed in the lower lips of some of this girls to show that sheis ready for marriage and childbirth. So am a very huge fan of Marvel and I went to Re-see a movie scene in black panther where a male was also wearing this lip plate. He was from the river tribe the tribe of Nakia (Nupita Nyongo) and all he said was “the river tribe would not challenge today” with a truly weird accent.
It seems the lip plates has so much astonished the outside world that even Marvel had to copy the looks and characteristics of the Mursi tribe. Not surprising at all as we all know that the Mursi tribe’s culture and traditions are very rich and also very rare and almost impossible to find in any other place in the world. They practice a religion called Animism. No wonder they cover up the bodies with snail shells as a form of jewelleries. Some also use Cow horns as their own Jewelleries. From the looks of things those with snail shells are obviously the richer and wealthier class.
Well they say one man’s food is another man’s poison but come to think of it how on earth do snail shells and cow horns pass as jewelleries. I was thinking jewelleries are expensive, shiny priced piece of items that ladies mostly wear to beautify themselves and here are a tribe of people that consider snail shell’s and cow horns worthy enough to be used to adorn and beautify themselves.
