The Kayan are a sub-group of the Karen who wear big earings and also leg rings similar to the Kayah (long-necks). here seen at one of the villages set up especially for tourists near Chiangmai. They also come from Burma and like to wear the Thanaka paste upon their faces, but usually in spots as decoration rather than all over the face as the Burmese do.

Hi Fabian. Perfect little face and the dots somehow accentuate her delicate features. Thank goodness she is not a Kayah with rings around her neck.The beads remind me of Native American crafts. Lovely colours. Regards. Klaudio.

Very cute ... and also very interesting. A great anthropological photo. Technically a very good photo with colors and composition well done. I like her clothes ... and I like the bench she sits on ... very crude, but interesting construction. A solid great TE photo. Thanks FS

Good to see this one! These vilages for tourists are not that different but I guess I've never seen them using Thanaka this way in the ones I've visited - it makes a nice effect! I like her pose surrounded by all those things to sell tourists.
