A fish and a hand of Fatma are painted on a troglodyte home entrance to ward off evil and bring good fortune in one of the thousands of pit dwellings that still exist in the Matmata region of southern Tunisia, Thursday March 25, 2004. It consists of sunken courtyards joined by tunnels, with adjacent rooms – a relic of the local Amazigh people, who decided centuries ago that living underground was the best way to keep cool.
