Title:

Puerto Lara, Darien Rainforest, Panama.

Caption:

Body art is one of the most important and enduring traditions in Embera and Wounan culture. intricate lines are painted on a young Embera girl with indelible black dye made from the jagua fruit.
Here a young woman paints her younger sister who has just returned home from school. Villagers alternate between traditional dress and western clothes yet there is little modesty. Most women in the community are topless.
