Henna Arts

I originally wrote this entry on August 6, 2004 and published it on

Catherine Cartwright-Jones of Kent State University has put together a brief but interesting history of henna. Her website also includes an encyclopedia of henna. Henna has now become part of the Americana with followers from New England to Hollywood.

Here's a picture of my daughter Yasmine on her 10th birthday. (Sunday 04-04-04, April 4, 2004. How uncommon is that?) The henna design on her hand is a rather simple pattern.

Here's a picture of both my daughters (Negin is the 6-year-old) on the same day. On the top left corner, a friend of Yasmine's is drying her hennaed hand.
