Another image out of Africa that is just stunning to me. She is a Krobo girl. The Krobo people are famous for making the most beautiful beads from recycled, pulverized glass (soda bottles). I'm always on the hunt for antique, African, trade beads, so I have a lot of fave pics of these people. Look at her hair! That's EXTREMELY reminiscent of ancient Egyptian hair styles! Don't ya think?
A young woman in Peru. Repinned by Elizabeth VanBuskirk. (Probably she is from Chahuaytire, above Piscac where women weave beautiful beaded jakimas (narrow woven bands) for their hats). See another girl from Chahuaytire below.
