The Tuareg are an Islamic semi nomadic African people.

The Tuareg are best known for the men’s practice of veiling their faces with a blue cloth dyed with indigo. Early travelers’ accounts often referred to them as the “Blue Men” of the Sahara Desert, the region where many Tuareg live. It is believed that the Tuareg are descendants of the North African Berbers, and that they originated in the Fezzan region of Libya.

Because they fascinate me, I have created many mosaic portraits of veiled eyes. I built this Tuareg portrait in 2012, using mostly ceramic and stone tiles.
