New on 500px : The Holy Fire by laurenmetzler by laurenmetzler

The Holy Fire is tied to the ancestors of the Himba people, which are their gods. Newcomers must not step between the First Wife’s hut and the Holy Fire. Instead, they go around the back and speak with the Chief of the tribe first. (Or the First Wife if the Chief is away) Afterwards, they have permission to stay in the village as long as they like. The Himba are a nomadic people, some traveling from village to village, and all are welcome.
