Photographer's Note

The village of Palawa in Sulawesi island, is located in the territory of the People "Toraja", they live in large communal houses shaped saddle with high pointed roofs covered with geometric designs and decorated with buffalo horns, which number and size determine the status of the family within the community. This image is scanned from a slide, and although their quality is below what today we are used to manage, I think for your interest and original environment should include in my gallery. I hope you enjoy it.

La aldea de Palawa en la isla de Sulawesi, se encuentra en el territorio del pueblo “Toraja”, estos viven en grandes casas comunales con forma de silla de montar con altos tejados en punta cubiertos de dibujos geométricos y adornados con cuernos de búfalo, cuyo número y tamaño determinan el rango de la familia dentro de la comunidad. Esta imagen esta escaneada a partir de una diapositiva y aunque su calidad sea inferior a lo que hoy día estamos acostumbrados a manejar, creo que por su interés y original ambiente debe figurar en mi galería. Espero os guste.
