Hand Print


Amerindians in the Rupununi of Guyana hold cultural events that highlight dance and music that is being passed down amongst 'culture groups'.  Here a young boy has been painted with a homemade paint made from the Anatto plant - it bears spiky pods that contains seeds coated in a red paint.  Amerindians use this paint to decorate themselves with designs and whatever else they can come up with!
