Hema Boy

The Hema tribe consists of about 160,000 members in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. I found the picture of the boy wearing a fur hat in a random magazine. 

I’m struck by his beautiful eyes and the fur hat adorned with feathers. The hat looks like something off the runway. Here is the iPad version. 

And here is the photo of this wonderful boy.
