Artist's Description

Shan boys, soon to be initiated as novice Buddhist monks, make music during a Poy Sang Long festival in Mae Hong Son province, Thailand. The drum is coated with sticky rice to improve its sound. The boys, with makeup and painted fingernails, dress as young princes before they enter the monkhood for a short period. This picture was taken as they were taking a break from wearing their elaborate costumes.
