ETHNIC : Girl in Kimono (Japan) by HendrikHermans
ETHNIC : Girl in Kimono (Japan)
Coloured pencil on white canson 224 g paper 27 x 36 cm
Reference : 500px.com/photo/40359594/untit…

Kimono ( literally "something worn," i.e., "clothes") is the traditional garment of Japan. Originally the word kimono was used for all types of clothing, but it came to refer specifically to the full-length garment that is still worn by women, men, and children.
Kimono are never wasted. Old kimono are recycled in various ways: they may be altered to make haori, hiyoku, or kimono for children; the fabric may be used to patch similar kimono; larger pieces of fabric may be used for making handbags and other similar kimono accessories; and smaller pieces can be used to make covers, bags or cases for various implements, especially items like fans and the sweet-picks used in tea ceremony.
Children are dressed in kimono for festivals and for special offering ceremonies at temples when they are three, five, and seven years old.

ETHNIC : Street kids (Indonesia) by HendrikHermans
ETHNIC : Street kids (Indonesia)
Colored pencil drawing on black canson mi-teintes A4
Reference : mjbeng.deviantart.com/art/Stre…  by  :iconmjbeng:

According to a 2007 study, there were over 170,000 street children living in Indonesia. In 2000, about 1,600 children were living on the streets of Yogyakarta. Approximately 500 of these children were girls from the ages of 4–16 years of age.Many children began living on the streets after the 1997 financial crisis in Indonesia. Girls living on the street face more difficulties than boys living on the street in Indonesia.
Children choose the streets as a place to make money and get attention, but they have no direction, goals or hopes.
They rely on natural instinct and desire, lack discipline and have no consideration for risk or danger. This makes them particularly vulnerable to daily abuse, whether it is physical, psychological or even sexual.

Ukrainian embroidery, weaving, and lace-making are used in traditional folk dress and in traditional celebrations. Ukrainian embroidery varies depending on the region of origin, and the designs have a long history of motifs, compositions, choice of colors, and types of stitches. Use of color is very important and has roots in Ukrainian folklore. Embroidery motifs found in different parts of Ukraine are preserved in the Rushnyk Museum in Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi.
