Artist's Description

A young Lahu girl in Thailand with teeth and gums stained by betel. In the past most children started chewing a mix of betel leaf, lime, chestnut bark and tobacco when they were very young. The addictive mix induces copius amounts of red saliva and stains teeth, lips and gums. Now, the hilltribe children go to school where betel chewing and smoking tobacco is no longer tolerated.
