|This woman is a member of a Po hilltribe village near Ban Mae Sariang in northwestern Thailand. She is holding a pipe made from bone and metal. At the time the photograph was taken she was watching children break apart a rotten log to expose ants for several hungry newly-hatched chicks.|
Her jacket is made from brightly dyed locally grown cotton. The beads for her necklaces were most likely commercially manufactured and acquired through trade with other villages. She has tattoos on her fingers and hands as is customary for Po women.
