Mama Samwelle

This photo is of a women I met whilst Volunteering in Tanzania. She is an elder in the village. Here she i dressed in her finest dress and Jewellery. She didn't want to smile for the photo but when she saw her self on my camera screen she showed her teeth which were pointed in shape. This is an old tribal mark they say for "eating meat", but we believed it more to be to scare their enemies
