Artist's Description

A Red Lahu man carries his decoy cock in a traditional basket as he heads out from his village in northern Thailand to hunt. He will tie the bird in the forest and wait until its call attracts a wild chicken, then blast the unsuspecting bird with his shotgun. Hunting wild game has always supplemented the Lahu’s diet. The rice they grow in forest clearings that they have slashed and burnt is their staple, but forest products are essential for their survival.
