Belgian model Marisa Papen describes herself as a "free-spirited and wild hearted expressionist". The nude model who caused a worldwide stir after a secret photoshoot inside one of Egypt's most ancient temples landed her in jail has now appeared naked among one of Africa's painted tribes. Marisa Papen was at the centre of a worldwide controversy after she was imprisoned for posing nude in the vast temple complex of Karnak, near the city of Luxor earlier this month. The Belgian model has now shared stunning pictures taken by Australian photographer Jesse Walker from their African trip that saw her walk naked among the members of an isolated Ethiopian tribe. She also spoke out about the remarkable stories she heard during her time their and about how beauty and nudity is seen by tribe members.
