Mixing paint in Northern Namibia photo by @salvarezphoto
Red paint. Specifically paint made from red ochre is incredibly important to humanity's artistic development. The first evidence of art that we have comes from 100,000 year old ochre paint kits found in Southern South Africa. In Namibia the Himba tribe still makes paint the same way that our common ancestors did. They grind a mineral called red ochre into a fine powder and mix it with animal fat. The recipe has endured for eons. #namibia
