Henna Boxes

I purchased the henna boxes years ago in India and one of them may have come from that magical city, was such a long time ago.... Henna is used in a myriad of ways, but my favorite is the thick mixture which is painted in intricate designs on the hands and feet of a bride. I was inspired to post the containers after viewing a beautiful wedding video on twitter. Filmed in Jaipur, the photographer wove together actual wedding footage into a mystery of his own creation. I hope you enjoy the link, the film lasts about 30 minutes.
