The Kayapo Indian village of Motukôre, Amazonia, South of Para State. Session of body paints. Draw patterns inspired by local wildlife. This activity is much more than an aestheticization of the body, it is about giving the person painted the status of a member of a collective, to attribute to him the condition of being human. This factor of humanization takes place from birth to begin the socialization of the person. Thus, a newborn has the body totally painted in red with roucou paste.
