Miss Landmine

The millions of landmines planted in Angola during the civil war inspired a competition for injured women. Created by Norwegian artist Morten Traavik, Miss Landmine celebrates pride and empowerment over physical perfection. In this beauty contest 10 women competed for the title of most beautiful mutilated Angolan woman for a first prize of a prosthetic leg prosthesis.
