The southern Austrian city of Klagenfurt was filled with color on July 12 to 14 during the 21st annual World Body Painting Festival.
The color appeared on hundreds of models who wore body paint and colorful props. One of the models, Corina, stood for six hours in order to be painted as a blue Egyptian goddess.
The Austrian model was painted from head to toe. Yellow and black boots covered her blue legs. She wore an orange chest plate. A blue beetle climbed from her belly toward a large gold necklace.
“I visited the festival last year and during the presentation of the models I got goose bumps, so I decided to be part of it,” Corina said.
She was painted by South African Carla Gouws, a 20-year-old debut artist who only took up body painting last year.
The Klagenfurt festival attracts thousands of visitors every year. This year, artists from 50 countries took part. (Reuters)
