Tibetan Khampa woman from Litang at the 2007 Litang Festival. She has her hair in 108 braids, a holy number, and wears regalia owned by her family worth tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. The gold ornaments are really gold, and the whole outfit weighs around 20kg and takes 2 hours to put on. Because Tibetans in this region are traditionally nomadic, jewellery has been the best way to store and transport their wealth, as well as hand it down through the generations
