Photographer's Note

Old muslim women from Malabar region of Kerala had innumerable varieties of ornaments for the different parts of the body. I thought of posting a photo of my great aunt as a tribute. The upper part of her ear was pierced at several places to wear small rings of gold called "chittu". Interestingly, she worn all of her ornaments until her death at an age of 98!
