Puerto Lara, Darien Rainforest, Panama.

Caption:

The Wounan are renowned for their intricately woven baskets. Long bundles of fibers are fashioned into cords and wrapped with dyed fibers at intervals thus creating geometric designs as the cords are coiled concentrically outward. It is extremely fine and time-consuming work. Body art is one of the most important and enduring traditions in Embera and Wounan culture. intricate lines are painted on a young Embera gir with indelible black dye made from the jagua fruit.
