This elderly woman belongs to the Mursi ethnic group, from the Omo Valley in southwest Ethiopia. This ethnicity is characterized by women piercing the posterior lip as a pircing, and introducing a stick at the beginning. Afterwards, as they grow larger, they introduce a clay dish made by themselves, which grows larger with time. Thus, it can deform the lower lip as in the case of this ancian.
