Ekori - Historical Picture

Ekori - Historical Picture

A photograph taken by a German missionary in the late nineteenth century shows three Herero women in traditional leather clothing. (Photo: NAN 20169, Brinker, 1896, p51)


In what ways do you think the design of the Ekori has changed over time ?  How different are the historical examples (shown here) to the headdresses still worn by the Ovahimba in Kunene Region today ?
