photograph

Stuart Hahn, MD

This photo was taken on a trip to Namibia, Africa in 2008. Namibia is the

home the Himba tribe. The Himba live a traditional life as nomadic herders.

The adult women are quite striking in appearance as they cover their bodies

and hair with a combination of ocher and animal fat as a beautification

cream/covering. The women wear short goatskin skirts and little other

clothing. Copper bracelets, as in this photo, and animal skin hair adornments

add to their distinctive appearance.

Dr Hahn is a retired Family Practice Physician and former Clinical Director

of the Sacramento Appointment and Advice Call Center.
