The Ancient Art of Henna
Ornamenting the skin with henna is among the world's oldest known art forms. A paste is made from the henna plant (Lawsonia Inermis) and applied to the skin in a wide array of intricate designs. The ancient cosmetic and healing practice - known as Mehndi - is still widespread among cultures in North Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
In today's Western world, there has been a great resurgence in the use of henna, and Luna's Henna guitars, the first in a series, are our tribute to this ancient feminine art form.
UK artist Alex Morgan created the artwork especially for Luna's henna guitars.
The pattern I chose for Luna's Henna guitar is based on the art of Medieval Spain. This culturally rich and diverse period is the only one in which henna was grown and used as a cosmetic in Europe. Coincidentally, the era also was historically important in the development and growing popularity of the guitar. ...Alex Morgan
