Caption:

Before participating in a dance performance this woman wanted to pose for the camera.  She has decorated her full-body with jagua dye and the traditional wrap-skirt and bead necklaces. However, in a concession to modern conveniences, she has painted her lips with lipstick instead of using the juice from the achiote seeds.
