Beaded neck ornament, Sudan - central band of patterned Venetian beads & brass cartridge cases, worn by a Dinka man at or shortly before his wedding to show his eligibility and the wealth of his family in cattle. The beads themselves would either have been traded across the savannah from West Africa or brought inland from the East African coast.

Rhino Sanctuary, Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Sudan, the only remaining male Northern White Rhino in the world. There are two remaining females. Sudan is too old to reproduce. The Northern White once roamed most of North Africa, but because of war and poachers they are at the brink of extinction.

Africa | 'Dinka Men in Beaded Corsets, South Sudan'. Dinka men from South Sudan often walk through the cattle camps hand in hand. This physical touching celebrates their close bonds as age-mates. Their traditional corsets are color coded to show their status in life: a red corset indicates a young man 15 to 25 years old, while a yellow one shows he is over 30 years old and ready for marriage. | © Carol Beckwith & Angela Fisher, 1979
