Artist's Description

Girls waiting till the henna dries, I was allowed to make a photograph of their new decorations at Pakistan Bazaar in Bradford UK.

“Henna has been used throughout Africa, India, and the Middle East for thousands of years.
For centuries, mehndi — the art of henna painting on the body — has been practiced in India, Africa, and the Middle East, where the henna plant is believed to bring love and good fortune, and to protect against evil. Mehndi is traditionally practiced for wedding ceremonies, during important rites of passage, and in times of joyous celebration. A paste made from the crushed leaves of the henna plant is applied to the skin, and when removed several hours later, leaves beautiful markings on the skin that fade naturally over 1 to 3 weeks. " Text from Earth Henna website.
