Padaung Woman

circa 1950: A Padaung, or Kayan woman. Originally a Mongolian tribe, the Padaung have been assimilated into the Karen group native to Mayanmar (Burma). The most stiking feature of these people are the brass rings fitted to the necks and limbs of women born on Wednesdays. The first neck ring is fitted when they are five or six, with successive rings fitted every two years, denoting the status of their family. (Photo by Vitold de Golish/Three Lions/Getty Images)
