Flower Warriors

flowerwarrior.jpgRegular reader Mina J. sends in a link to this article about a tribe of goat herders in Saudi Arabia where men and women decorate their hair with flowers. But this being Paris-Match and not National Geographic, the author, Thierry Mauger, gets nearly apoplectic as he describes the “breathtaking beauty” of the men, compares them to “Christs of cathedrals,” and otherwise lets his imagination run wild at the encounter.

The photos appear in a book by Thierry Mauger titled Thierry au Pays de L’Or Noir. (God almighty. And you thought the Tintin-era orientalist crap was a thing of the past.)
