I´m the wild (wo)man from Borneo-o-o













I had been at a loss for a while how to continue
with Hands of Time...

... there are 57 different hand patterns...













... so I traced my own left hand with pen and
pastel dye sticks...













... some more hands (henna-dyed, these are, belonging
to girls in a Koran school in Bangladesh...
