 ”Sometimes a Surma man will paint the girl to whom he is attracted. This provides an excellent opportunity not only to perfect his painting technique but also to get to know the woman of his desire. This man uses a stalk of green grass to apply paint made from pulverized leaves mixed with chalk and water” | Image and caption  ”Painted Bodies” by Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher
