Danish Women’s Handball Team Gets Painted
In lead up to next month’s World Cup, the Danish women’s handball team got bodypainted by artist Monty Knowles. This was done for promotional purposes and to highlight the team’s fierce and ready approach to the upcoming game that is held on Danish soil.

“All lines on my body are made by hand, and it took 9-10 hours to get me painted,” commented handball player Louise Burgaard to the BT.
