, April 19, 2014

Ma Toke, an ethnic Kayan woman wears bronze rings around her neck as she works in Panpet village, Demoso township Kayah state, Myanmar. Some ethnic Kayan women, also known as Padaung, begin wearing the bronze rings on their neck and legs from young. Usually they start wearing six to ten rings when they are five to ten-years-old and then they put one more ring every year. Reuters/Soe Zeya Tun
