Colours at one of the many customs preceding a traditional wedding.
What beautiful colours...what's going on here? What are the materials?nosy in Longham...
Marion, this is part of a Punjabi wedding ceremony. It is called "Maiyaan" (ਮਾਈਯਾਂ) and it performed a day or two before the ceremony when the groom or bride's family (at their respective homes) apply a paste on their(groom/bride) bodies (legs, arms and face) so that they are clean after they take a bath. The colours used here were rice coloured with cooking colours available from any grocery shop. They came out pretty well in the image, didn't they?
That's interesting, Kamal, thanks for explaining, and yes, the image is splendid.
Oh and I forgot to point out that the hands you see in the image have been decorated with Henna. Check out this one for details.
