Puerto Lara, Darien Rainforest, Panama.

Caption:

Body art is one of the most important and enduring traditions in Embera and Wounan culture. intricate lines are painted on a young Embera gir with indelible black dye made from the jagua fruit. A Wounan artist applies jagua dye to the arm of a visitor. She creates the delicate parallel designs and small dots using a piece of bamboo that she has sliced into fork-like tines.
