Photographer's Note

In Rio Chagres rain forest live the Empera Indians. Relatively isolated they keep their traditions and language alive. They come in contact with tourists occasionaly and are really friendly.
Their anistic religion is rich and they worship all natural elements like Water, Fire, Rain, Soil and they use roots nad plant extracts to treat everything.
Women are always topless and here the 2 girls just decorated their body before a dancing ritual they performed. Their height is short (no more than 1.50 mt)
Unfortunately my camera back then was an automatic one and the picture is not of high quality. I reduced noise with Neat Image after a suggestion of a TE friend
