“I know a 'face' where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream | omo valley Ethiopia.

With large eyes staring out behind his brilliantly painted face this child is a proud member of one of the Omo Valley tribes who live in Ethoipia, east Africa.
Since the beginning of time we as humans have been using a variety of elements for fashion. Of course the obvious reasons for clothing began simply for the purposes of keeping warm and dry. As cultures began to develop it also became the method of covering up one's private parts. That is when man and woman decided they needed to have a sense of privacy and sexual separation. But I didn't post this to start a lesson on the history and mystery of why people began wearing clothes. Actually I wanted to bring attention to a particular kind of fashion and style that still culturally pervades today in Africa. What was originally intended for protection from the sun's rays, many tribes in Africa have developed unique and stylish ways of decorating their skin. I, having been to Kenya and Tanzania in East Africa, have a particular fascination with the people, their style, traditions, languages, food, and history. Africa is such a vast and anthropologically rich continent with several dozen countries, a myriad of languages, tribes, and regions. There is a particular area of the lower valley of the Omo which I find really stylish and rich in tradition. This valley borders up with Ethiopia, Kenya and Sudan which is home to the Surma and Mursi tribes. This region has vast flowing rivers that run throughout the driest and even desolate landscape. These rivers provide the surrounding land with unique and abundant wild flowers, papyrus and wild fruit trees. The tribe's people in an amazing spectacle, like in most parts of Africa, use nature's fruits and plants to not only eat but also adorn their bodies with. They create a body paint made with plants, berries, powdered stone, and river mud. After the body painting is complete, they use all of nature's splendor to create an infinite wardrobe of accessories ranging from head pieces and earrings to footwear and anklets. Flesh becomes a blank canvas to create extravagant living art. This to me is so fascinating and also serves as proof that it's a humanistic desire to dress (or not) and style however you see fit. Fashion and styling has been around for millions of years in one form or another and constantly evolves. It goes to show that the most well established couture fashion house in the world is indeed Mother Earth.

African-American flappers in fur and silk stockings. Flappers were a "new breed" of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms.

With nice henna designs! In Lamu, many women i met told me they put the veil to avoid boys bother them! Used for several millenaries for its dying proprieties, the henna became famous for the temporary brownish tattoos it allows to make harmlessly on the skin. Extracted from the homonym plant by crushing its fresh leaves, Henna is broadly used in Africa, Southern Asia and the Middle East. Cleopatra and Nefertiti are known for having used henna and in Egyptian beliefs, it was part of the afterlife journey preparation, since it has been discovered on several mummies' toenails by archeologists. In India, the henna has been introduced by the Mughal conquerors in the 12th Century. From this moment on, it has been used by the people that live in the Thar desert to paint their hands and feet, which would maintain their body temperature low. A paste made with a mix of the power obtained by crushing the leaves, water and essential oil is applied on the body with the help of a little cone or syringe by artists or designers. Making a tattoo on each arm with a lot of details can last up to 5 hours. Then count another 4 hours to dry the skin, during which you cannot do anything. On the hair, you must make a coating and let the henna act for several minutes. The result can vary from auburn to darker colors: brown and purple, depending on if used on combination with indigo dye or alone, the original color of the hair and the originating place of the henna. Muslim males also use henna for dying their beards, following the tradition of prophet Muhammad, Koran writes. The night of Henna -or Bridal henna- is undoubtedly one of the most widespread tradition among Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus in the countries where the henna is present enough (Turkey, Lebanon, Morocco, India, etc.). It is a women's party that usually takes place the night before the wedding. The brides closest friends and female parents gather to eat, dance and have the bride's hands painted with henna patterns: flowers in the Muslim culture; a circle of dots with a bigger dot in the center called Mehndi in India. This ritual symbolizes the passing of the bride under her husband's care and the leaving from paternal authority. A more superstitious tradition is henna averts malevolent spirits and the so-called Evil eye in Africa, the Arabian peninsula and the Levant. It is also supposed to attract or repel helpful or harmful Jinns, sort of supernatural creatures in Arab folklore. Over the passed two decades, the tradition of henna has been spreading to the West in a trendy manner: in Cornwall, U.K., a Princess had herself henna-tattooed before her wedding, reproducing the Night of Henna ritual described above. Black Henna is alternately used to talk about Indigo blue, a natural dye used in the same manner than the henna, and about a harmful chemical that can leave lifetime scars and have heavy after-effects. © Eric Lafforgue www.ericlafforgue.com

DAYTON TELLING HIS PART OF THE STORY: I moved out of Ruby's bedroom, through the hall and down the stairs. At the bottom a draft of cold air brushed my fur. I shivered, but walked through it and continued to my cat exit. The cat door flapped with a rubbery sound when I stepped outside into the crisp fall air.
#black #cat...love black kitties. Had an adorable one once named Boo. Miss him so much.<3
