Intricate Kosovar Wedding Paint

The Albanian Terbesh people of Kosovo who preside in Lubinje, a village at the foot of the Sharri mountains and very near to Prizren, have a tradition of dressing and making up a bride for her wedding day. It’s done to ward off the evil eye and discourages gossip and speculation.
