Title:

Jagua man, Santa Lucia, Amazon, Peru.

Caption:

The Jagua people use the natural red die of achiote to paint their faces. Until the beginning of the last century they were known to cover their full bodies and were thus nicknamed the "Red Skin" by other tribes. Men also wear headdresses made with colorful Amazon birdís feathers.
