Muchimba - Angola

XXXI-33 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Muchimba | Cunene province | Angola, 2017


The Muchimba people are a semi-nomadic people living mainly in Angola’s border area with Namibia, on the dry Kaokoveld Plateau in the Cunene region. The Cunene river is an important resource in Muchimba daily life,
much of which revolves around their cattle and goats. Rather than using water to clean themselves in this dry region, women cover their skin and hair in a mixture of butterfat and ochre pigment known as otjize. As well as
keeping them clean, this sometimes perfumed substance protects them from the sun.

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
