TRIBAL MARKS

Here is a video and two pieces of artwork I have created, based on tribal marks that are sometimes used in African culture. I looked in particularly at the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria and the meaning behind their kolo markings/ scar decorating. I read about how some of the scars can signify a persons hierarchy within the tribe, or they are sometimes worn by marriageable women to show they are willing and determined to endure the pain of child birth.
