Magnificent Body Paint Inspired by Islamic Architecture, Koranic Illustration and Pablo Neruda

This exquisite body art work is the result of a collabo between French Moroccan artist Yasmina Alaoui and fashion photographer Marco Guerra. "Her elaborate pattern usage, notes Paintilicious, is heavily influenced by Koranic illustration and Islamic architecture. In contrast, Marco Guerra...(was)inspired by Pablo Neruda’s sultry poetry. Their unique collaboration is enriched by these two contrasting styles; both combine mysterious beauty with rich cultural heritage to create a modern, and yet classical version of 'painted lady'."
