Dinka Painted Lady - South Sudan
Painting - Acrylics On Canvas
The Dinka use cattle urine in washing, dyeing hair etc. The dung of the cattle is not wasted either. It is used as fuel to make fire. The ash created has several purposes. The Dinka use it to clean cattle and keep them safe from parasites. They find ash useful for themselves too - mainly as kind of tooth paste and also in body art.
