Khidab bodypainting on the back for a little girl

Khidab is a Gall ink which is employed in Yemen mainly in the mountainous regions around the capital Sanaa instead of henna. For an account how it is made you can download an article:

Yemeni Women’s Body Painting with Black Gall Ink Khidab, Production Methods,

from my colleage Dr. Hanne Schönig at www.henna-und-mehr.de/pdf/Khidabartikel_eu.pdf (Englisch)

or www.henna-und-mehr.de/pdf/schoenig_deutsch.pdf (German)
