"According to Patrick and Anne Putman, Mbuti art, both on the body and on bark cloth, is of purely aesthetic nature, without magical significance. Certain facial scarifications may indicate the membership of a clan. Elsewhere the design owes more to the artist's imagination than to any agreed subject."

During his trip to Congo (now Democratic Republic of Congo), Elisofon visited the Mbuti people near Beni, South East Ituri Forest region. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon traveled to Africa from March 17, 1970 to July 17, 1970.
