Artist's Description

In Northern Thailand, near Chiang Mai, there are a number of indigenous hill tribes who have carved a life out of the jungle. One such is the Karen Padaung Tribe, who for centuries have had a practice of making their women, beginning at five years old,wear these brass rings from clavicle to chin. Each year a new ring is added. To others they are known as Long Necks, which the Karen see as a sign of beauty. One woman we saw had thirty seven of these rings…..and a very elongated neck.
