2004 Romania, Gypsies (70/86)
Garoafa, wearing a "western style" purple dress, stands with her friend beside a scene from a Persian story painted on the wall of a Roma home, in the old part of the camp. These Arabian scenes are very popular as wall decoration, but no-one within the camp knows the reason why they were first painted.
