The rich history of African Royalty is expressed in the Chief from the Lobi tribe of Chad. Inspired by the movie Black Panther, On the Wakanda council there was a man with a fashionable LIP PLATE that matched the material in his green suit. The lip plate, thought to be a disfiguring facial mutilation is now a fashion statement. The lip plate, like the movie shows the beauty and benefits of the rich African heritage. Many of the tattoo’s and scaring of today owes its foundation to the history and heritage of Africa.
