Artist's Description

From a picture by Johan Gerrits who has kindly allowed me to paint his subjects over the last couple of years. Johan is an amazing travel photographer. You can look at his work on his web site: http://www.pbase.com/johan97

This Dimasa woman is performing at the Hornbill festival Kohima – Nagaland – India.
The Dimasa are part of the greater Kachari group. They live mostly in the northern half of the Indian state of Assam. The name ‘Dimasa’ most probably stands for “children of the big river,” referring to the Brahmaputra. Kacharis appear to be one of the earliest indigenous ethnic groups of north eastern India.
