Mehindi Henna Moth

Mehindi Henna Moth

Artist – Minnie Tuovinen

Design Description

This moth design is based on the Mehndi Henna designs from Pakistan which is often used for festive occasions such as weddings, religious events and traditional ceremonies. Mehndi or henna is a paste that is bought in a cone-shaped tube and is squeezed on the skin in designs that once dry, stains the skin for several weeks. This marks some of Amy Johnson’s stop-off points in Pakistan and India on her way to Australia.
