Kadiki - A Series Of Mystics

She appears in form of a manjé in a black wrap and a long silver girdle around her hips, the golden necklace, anklets and bracelets with an orchid on her hair. Her eyes are white, drawn of eye-shadow and eyebrow marking like a native islander. She wears a black armband on her left biceps with a talisman. She’s raised to the magic of orchids. Anzala Fahsha comes down to fulfil desire.
