Mezőkövesd Movie-Drawing with water

A movie from my trip to Mezokövesd. This artist picked up a can full of water and just started drawing on the dirt floor! I wish I would have had my camera ready at the beginning but I didn't know she was going to do this. The motifs are very traditional for this region.

Hi Jill! Is that really you? I have not heard it called Magyar?? Only Matyo. Do you have any links that you can send me with more info on Madyar?
