Many hours of grooming and face painting are carried out to transform a Karo man for courtship. His hair is covered with clay and carefully molded into two buns. into these buns, macramé knots are inserted which will hold ostrich feathers worn at courtship dances. finally, intricate spotted patterns painted over the hair and face complete the mask-like look.
