Berber bride with henna

Featured Photograph

The red silk cloth covering this Berber bride's face is adorned with layers of silver jewelry and silk tassels. She also wears gold bracelets and an amber necklace. A bride typically asks a friend or hires a negafa, "a professional makeup artist," to decorate her hands with henna, a natural plant dye believed to have divine blessings.
