Edited Photographer Note: In this photo is a Padaung woman, captured at the loom in the process of weaving a shawl in traditional colors (blue and red). Women from the Karen ethnic minority of the Padaung tribe are well known to many people from all around the world as "giraffe-women" or "long-necked."
