Memorial Necklace from the Ocean

Portrait of man wearing a short shell necklace, Epupa Falls, Namibia

We met Tico by the Epupa Falls in Namibia. He told us that his necklace is made of shells from the ocean. He began wearing it when his father died. It is traditional that a year after a father's death, the siblings will have a ceremony to remember their dad and then they will remove their necklaces.
