      Afar Bride, Djibouti. "Sebera Seko, a Muslim bride from the family of the Sultan of Tadjourah, enhances her already considerable beauty with some of the most exotic gold jewelry found in the Horn of Africa. Because of her father's involvement in the dhow sea trade, she is given jewelry that comes from as far away as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan, and India." ~ photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher, writing in the book "Faces of Africa"

      Absolutely beautiful bridal headdress. Traditional wedding adornment in Afar, Djibouti. I want to host a dinner party and have something this exotic to wear.

    Hina-’ere’ere-manu’a is the Tahitian Goddess of Tattooing. Her parents, Hina and Ti’i, kept her hidden away, until one day she was spied by the Gods Tu Ra’i Po and Mata Mata Arahu. They decided to seduce her, and used charcoal to draw designs on one another. Hina-’ere’ere-manu’a was fascinated by the designs and wanted one for herself. She managed to evade her mother and snuck out to get a tattoo. Her name means “Hina with the quick temper.”
