Almost a work of art
The Fulani or Fulɓe are a large ethnic group that has spread to the territories of many African countries. Most Fulani live in Guinea, where they make up about 40% of the population.
According to Arabic manuscripts, representatives of this ethnic group appeared for the first time 1000 years ago. They are nomadic herders. And women are often engaged in embroidery and the manufacture of ceramic tableware. But the Fulani are known, first of all, for their incredible appearance and unusual clothing, which is almost a work of art.
They are very different from other tribes, which often do not shine with their own hygiene and cleanliness of their homes. It’s hard to believe that the Fulani are nomads. Their appearance is so neat that it’s time to take them for city dwellers. Although many of them really moved to live in cities and went into business.
Africans consider this ethnic group the most beautiful on the continent. And it’s hard to argue with that. The reason for such a set of ideal features of appearance (tall stature, thin bone) is still unknown. After all, even genetic studies have confirmed that 65% of the Fulani genome is unknown.
Fulani’s face is something you can stare at for hours. They decorate it with scarring and tattoos, and children are often painted, thus emphasizing the natural beauty.
And these people also love gold. Jewelry made of this metal speaks of wealth and a certain status. Watching the Fulani people, you involuntarily think about their unearthly origin, a theory of which exists today.
