Hidden treasures of Indian Art

Fascinating programme on UK BBC 2 called 'Hidden treasures of Indian Art' http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00zfmkd

One of the tribes the presenter visits is the Rabari tribe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabari

Here is a nice photo of the women's traditional tattoos: http://ignca.nic.in/ex_0006.htm

Here is another website showing lots of their textile and body art traditions:

The head scarves in particular convey a lot of information - number of childre, married / single / widowed etc.
