The tradition of some parts of Bosnia decorates the bride’s face in a way that seems strange to outsiders.

A mask of different materials is placed on the bride’s face. The bride’s mask contains circles that symbolize different life cycles, and some brides are decorated for a traditional wedding.

The decorations are not limited to the face, there are traditional clothing distinctive, where these habits are threatened with extinction, and a few Bosnian women who find this heritage art, including Aziza Seftiach, who is 70 years old.
