Description

When flowers are abundant in the forest, Batek often make them into elaborate body decorations. Here a man and six women and girls wear headdresses of flowers on bark and rattan frames and plant stems through their nasal septa. The women also wear lines of white lime paste across their foreheads and flowers in their pierced ears.
