dc.description198 x 255 mm. Full length portrait of two Kachin women standing in front of a wooden fence. The precise tribe of the Kachin people to which these women belong has not been identified. From the description of costumes of the Northern (Khakhu) and Southern (Chingpaw) given in J.G. Scott's 'Gazetteer of Upper Burma and the Shan States' (Rangoon: Printed by the Superintendent, Government printing, Burma, 1900), they appear to share characteristics of both groups. The women wear dark coloured turbans embroidered jackets and skirts made from a large oblong of woven cloth. Around their waists are many cane rings, two of which are decorated to form a double row of cowrie shells (Scott 1900, volume 1, part 1, pages 397-398).en_GB
