Protected from the cosmos: festive make-up in the Touaregs


Under Indigo, sap, ocres and antimony are colouring substances used by Touaregs to change the appearance of the body. These cosmetic practices have not only aesthetic or prophylactic functions. They refer to the domain of sacred, human construction and the need to harmonise human relations with society, nature and cosmos.
