The dot

A bindi is traditionally a small red forehead decoration that was worn in South Asia to signify marital status and ethnic affiliation. However, times have changed and many are worn as fashion statements. You may now find them in many colors and containing stones or beads. Non-Asian celebrities, such as Madonna and Shakira, have been known to parade around with a bindi.
