Photographer's Note

I was told, ladies like to dress like that, it's a sort of tradition. These masks don't have a religious meaning, they were originally used by Portugese ladies to protect against sunburn (Portugese were expelled from Persia by King Abbas 1622).

The foto was taken at the weekly market.
