Muti shop

Muti is a traditional form of medicine in Southern Africa. Many people believe that natural materials such as plants and animal parts hold healing powers and devise treatments and interventions for everything from the flu to an ailing career. We visited a muti shop in the Johannesburg CBD the other day, and the shopkeepers graciously let me take photos to my heart's content. Made for some wild photos, and an interesting afternoon!


  1. I bet some of the remedies really do work! This made a very interesting shot.

  2. I hope that people are not killing animals to supply these products.

  3. What a terrific capture and a very interesting post, Susie! Hope you have a great week!
