Kayan Weavers with Neck Rings

Kayan Weavers with Neck Rings

After climbing a temple at sunset, we return to mortal earth. Some Kayan weavers from the north have come for the tourists. Tracing their history to Mongolia in the 700 AD, these elders still have the brass wire neck rings they have worn since childhood. They have difficulty removing them--they have few working neck muscles.
