Fashion shows, continued
While Dona Dica was showing Marina several dresses made of natural fibers from the jungle of the upper Tapajós River, I headed off to her backyard to see the source of feathers for her works of art. These two handsome geese met me at the door and put on a show themselves. The use of feathers for the fashion world doesn't seem to be as popular as it was in the past, but when used, Dona Dica doesn't need to kill off those beautiful birds flying around the jungle forest. Our friends in the above image make their contribution in favor of their jungle cousins.
