Image of Asia: Weaving traditional souvenirs in Myanmar

In this photo by Gemunu Amarasinghe, an ethnic Kayan Padaung woman in traditional attire weaves at a souvenir shop in Ywama village, Inle Lake, northeastern Shan state, Myanmar. Wearing neck rings is officially discouraged in Myanmar but shop owners employ Padang women in traditional attire as a tourist attraction.
