🇲🇲 Marauk-U, Rakhine State, Myanmar. The yellowish-white stuff you see on older sister's face is called Thanaka, a cosmetic paste made from ground bark. It is a distinctive feature of the culture of Myanmar, seen commonly applied to the face and sometimes the arms of women and girls, and is used to a lesser extent also by men and boys. The use of thanaka has also spread to neighbouring countries including Thailand.

================================================

I wanted to share this picture , uploaded a long time ago in a private area

I have much hesitated to re-post in the public area ...?

This is definitely one of my favourite photos and one of my most precious travel memories

I still have a lot of emotion in watching it ..I remember the look of confidence of these Burmese children towards their Western photographer. Ultimately this is a personal photo...dearest in my heart

Should we share our most precious memories??....Am I right or wrong ..?

 

I have been 5 times in Burma (lots of photos to scan / mainly slides and some TriX-B&W )

This is one of the most beautiful countries in Asia that I know

Landscapes, pagodas, Buddhist ceremonies,festivals, markets and even better the kindness of the Burmese people

Bagan Myanmar 緬甸 浦甘

Kids at the children's home having fun applying thanaka powder on one of the volunteers during a break. I like how the sun ray is illuminating the subject. Tanaka is a yellowish-white cosmetic paste made from ground bark. It is a distinctive feature of the culture of Myanmar, seen commonly applied to the face and sometimes the arms of women and girls.

As you head south in Madagascar to the hotter, drier plains you see more and more women with this thanaka on their faces, providing protection from the sun and wind. It is made from the bark of a tree. I am not entirely sure they call it thanaka in Madagascar, as that is the name of the tree they use the bark from for the same purposes in Myanmar. This girl was very beautiful and very shy, but happy to pose. She came from a very large family and we gave them all treats as well as rice and water.
