    Really like the 1st and last shots - the paintings on their hands are amasing.

    Just out of interest is their a reason other than privacy that their are no facial shots?

    Thanks JM.

    That's a 'Swastik'. In sanskrit, it means 'god well being' or 'welcome'. It has been an auspicious symbol for hindus since Vedic times.

    Cheers.

    These are very nice images!

    Jon, when I first went to Korea, they were everywhere. Not the same meaning that we would think of. They are a religious symbol.

    just really neat shots.... i am guessing the rice on the coconut represents maybe long life... fertility possibly??? can you tell me?

    and the paper she hands him..what is that?? and the burning??
    and i am also guessing that the seeds on the paper is fertility also??

    these are so very interesting..and i love the detail of the henna on her hands..i think you did a great job!!
