awakens inner light of
a painted lady

Author’s Note: Mehndi or “Mehendi” is a form of body art from Ancient India using a paste, created from the powdered dry leaves of the henna plant. Decorative designs are created on a person’s body that are intended to be a symbolic representation of the outer and the inner sun – “awakening inner light”.
