🇳🇦Inspired by the Himba women, Ijeoma’s crown is in two plaits reaching forward over her forehead. Upon reaching puberty, they will be separated, swept back and impregnated with ochre and butterfat, giving her the distinct red plaits of the Himba.
🔴Using the power of a blood moon and her charged crystals, Ijeoma uses her powers of astral projection to visit different worlds and realms.
🇳🇬 Ijeoma is an Igbo (Nigeria) girl name that means “Good journey in life”.
🇳🇦Living in northern Namibia, the Himba women are renowned for their intricate hairstyles and their use of otjize.
Otjize is a mixture of butterfat and ochre pigment used by the Himba people of Namibia to protect themselves from the harsh desert climate. The paste is often perfumed with the aromatic resin of Commiphora multijuga. The mixture lends the skin a deep orange or reddish tinge.
