Government Celebrations in Kangding, Kardze, Tibet 2010 | A Khampa Tibetan girl in a traditional ceremonial costume from Palyul county. She wears the traditional women's headdress in Palyul with many strands of turqoise, and a gold necklace across her forehead, nine necklaces of coral and contemporary dzi, and coral and dzi beads set gold rings on six fingers. The costume and ornaments are probably the belongings of her family, and contain much of the family's wealth and savings.
