Photographer's Note

The two wooden statues at the background are called "Bulol".

It gives a primordial presence of the region and serves more than the purpose of guarding the barn and the household. The bulol, whose image changes from province to province, is indicative also of relations and geographic origin.

As the bulol transmogrified, so did the costume, the weapons, and the musical instruments. The changes vary from color, to length to physical designs, but the basic purpose and inspiration stem from its close connection to the earth. For the early inhabitants, the earth is life, and the cycle of life and death begins and ends with the earth.

These women pose for picture with a fee, they may look old but are still striking to look at in their costume, am just wondering where the young ones are.
