''Mongol noble women. Early 20th century.'' As incapacitated as Elizabeth I in her farthingaled splendour, these elite women signal their high status by wearing extended sleeves.By obscuring their hands the ladies show that they don't need to use them. Excessive overdressing in this fashion is a strange business. Rather than enjoying the ease wealth should bring them the wearers must suffer any number of exhausting inconveniences.

stunning!!!I love everything about this photo and I would love a framed print.  I spent a long time, back in the day, researching Mongolia when I was considering a second adoption from that country. It is a fascinating culture!
