Two Padaung women in the local market near #Loikaw, #Myanmar wear heavy stacks of brass neck rings. According to legend, they are to fend off tiger attacks.

Living on a houseboat, the family offers their menagerie as an opportunity for travelers - to observe while they sell soft drinks to earn a little income for the family.
