morThe Mursi live deep in the Mago National Park. They might be the most famous of the residents of the Omo Valley, due to the clay plates worn in the lower lips of the Mursi women. When a young Mursi girl reaches maturity, a small slit is made in her lower lip, where a wooden plug is inserted. If they so choose, the women stretch the lip with increasingly larger plates. Women with the largest lip plates are seen as the most beautiful.
