irregular pattern. Shiny areas (forehead, cheekbones,
nose, ears, and chin) are painted with a dark,
color, and shadow areas (around the eyes, under
the nose, and under the chin) are painted with a
light color. In addition to the face, exposed skin

areas lacking green vegetation; and loam and white
