    Just looking at all the ANCIENT ART PIECES in Africa I notice many depict MAN and WOMAN in TOPLESS FORM.

    But today in many parts of Africa being TOPLESS is considered BACKWARDS and UNLEARNED due to VISITORS in the LAND.

    TOPLESS has become a SHOW of BODILY APPEARANCE.

    Does it have any other MEANING?

    Is just being NAKED due to "it's too hot around here lets us all go TOPLESS"

    Does it have any other APPLICATIONS.

    African Bees: A Bad Rep Doesn't Include Honey - NPR

    Have to go to the last third of this RADIO BROADCAST to understand why MEN went TOTALLY NAKED around KILLER BEES.

    Only a FOOL would go NAKED to get HONEY from a nest full of KILLER BEES.

    Its a insightful BROADCAST.

    Forest rites, tests as Togolese girls become women


    I think the ABOVE are just as VALID.
