Kosovar woman Sheqerie Buqaj lays on her back on September 5, 2018 as she receives a traditional face painting by Kosovar Bosnian woman Aziza Sefitagic, while presenting the traditional wedding of Bosnian women from Zhupa region, during the "Etno Fest" festival in the village of Kukaj.
As part of the centuries old tradition, old ladies prepare young brides, painting their faces in many layers of colors while the golden circles symbolize the cycles of life. Today, this tradition is at the verge of extinction as only a 70 year-old Lady Aziza, continues preparing young brides according to the tradition. / AFP PHOTO / Armend NIMANI
