miss landmine

Angola is littered with thousands of landmines all over the country. In 23 years, over 80,000 people had died or lost limbs due to one wrong step.

To call attention to this problem and to raise funds to eliminate landmines, Norwegian artist Morten Traavik launched a controversial beauty pageant called Miss Landmine, where 10 women competed for the title of most beautiful mutilated Angolan woman, and the first prize of a leg prosthesis.
