Sarah Golish - Sundust : dix magnifiques portraits représentant des déesses du soleil
Fille avec le visage peint traditionnellement de la tribu Sakalava, Nosy Be, Madagascar.
"The Sakalava or 'people of the long valleys' live in the west between Toliara and Mahajanga and are dark-skinned with Polynesian features and short curly hair. They were at one time the largest and most powerful tribe, though disunited, and were ruled by their own kings and queens. The Sakalava are cattle raisers, and riches are reckoned by the number of zebu owned." Madagascar: the Bradt Guide; www.bradtguides.com
