Kayan people are Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Myanmar. Kayan consists of a few groups, e.g., Kayan Lahwi in which women wear the brass neck coils (today’s photo). And Kayan Lahwi is probably the most known ethnic group from Myanmar, sometimes called as “the long-neck women”.

Ludzie z plemienia Kayan, a przede wszystkim Kayan Lahwi, to najbardziej znana grupa etniczna z Mjanmy. Kobiety z Kayan Lahwi noszą na szyi miedziane obręcze stąd potocznie nie mówi się “Kayan Lahwi”, a “kobiety o długiej szyi”.
