sisters festival

April 22, 2008

From The Guardian’s ’24 hours in pictures’ yesterday, taken by Lu Di in Taijiang county in Guizhou, Southwest China. The caption read:

‘Ethnic Miao girls in their best dresses walk across a river to visit relatives to celebrate the Sisters Festival. Miao people visit their friends and relatives during the festival in which young men and women have an opportunity to get to know one another. It is known as Miao’s Valentine’s Day.’

I would LOVE to have a head dress in the shape of a giant palm. Do you think there’s a cool way to make it wave hello and goodbye?
