Some cultural traditions make no sense at all, especially when the end result is pain and lifelong problems.

At first the image impressed me as delicate. And then I saw the fierceness. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Exquisite painting for such a disgusting practice. I love the freedom and activity of the brush strokes, the colors, and how the texture of the wall plays into the look.
