A tradition a 1000 years Old, passed on to generations of today's remote Donje Ljubinje in Zhupa area in South Kosovo. Today, this tradition is at the verge of extinction as only a 65yrs old Lady continues preparing young Brides according to their traditions.The Brides face is painted in many beautiful layers of colors.3 Golden circles symbolizing cycles of life tied to one another by golden roads that one crosses over their lifetime.The inner red circles are symbols of fertility where red&blue dots are born from and the whole face is covered by them wishing her a healthy and a happy family.

Location: Kosovo, Donje Lubinje, Prizren, Zhupa, South Kosovo
