You could argue that it’s because she’s a part of a primitive society and that they’re all simply used to a yenta jii style of dress (loosely translated as “mostly or fully buck in nakedness”).*
* Not really. Cool your Google jets, I just made that up.
We know tribal cultures don’t have wicker huts that could even pass for a cute Gilligan’s Island version of a Gap or Target, so it’s totally understandable there would be a lot of the body left wearing only the colors of the wind. But there’s just something more to this image…
You think she’s carrying a couple feet worth of sharpened metal. I think she’s carrying a million miles of perspective. Maybe we can all learn a lesson from looking at motherhood in such uncivilized surrounds…
Maybe there’d be less friction and scorn for us if we just tore off our shirts, buried our faces in a jar of strawberry jelly and carried swords when publicly tending to the raising of our kids, or ordering really complicated drinks at the coffee house…
Maybe that wasn’t the right lesson to draw from this. You decide for yourself. I’ve given you a lot of blank canvas to work with.
Facebook or Machete

Some of my drawrings.
