Niger African Girl Postcard

    Newer Older

    Shielding her glance under a veil so as not to look directly at the object of her desire, this young woman from Niger judges the charm & beauty dances of Wodaabe male dancers. When Wodaabe men sing about the ideal beauty of a woman, they say she must have eyes resembling those of gazelle, skin as clear as water, teeth as white as milk, and a back as long & straight as a young acacia tree.

    From the postcard book AFRICAN CEREMONIES
