Ilustrat de Marty Noble
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – September 2004

The ancient art of henna body painting widely used in India, Africa, and the Middle East varies from country to country and spans different cultures and religious traditions. Aside from the modern use of henna as a trendy, temporary tattoo, traditional designs have been used to celebrate weddings, births, and religious holidays.
This collection of charming images, adapted from authentic mehndi designs, incorporates more than 160 lovely, royalty-free patterns (largely Indian) that are used to cover hands, forearms, and feet. Included are fine line, lacy, and paisley motifs; detailed images of exotic birds and human faces, assorted floral borders, heart-shaped insets, and repeat patterns featuring abstracts and woven tendrils.
Of use to artists, designers, and craftworkers, these decorative motifs will also provide an exciting glimpse into the rich store of Indian ornamental art.
