The woman with a lip disc as big as her HEAD

This month, an Australian film crew was filming in southern Ethiopia when they stumbled upon Ataye Eligidagne, 20, who has the largest lip disc in the world.
The hardened clay disc is 59.5 cm in circumference and 19.5 cm in diameter. In recent times the Ethiopian government has taken measures to ban the discs, but they remain a prominent tradition amongst the Surma woman of the lower Omo Rover valley in Ethipoia.
