Color your World: Silver

These silver head ornaments are pretty, aren’t they?

Mother’s Triumph

Every April, the Miao ethnic group in Guizhou celebrate the so-called “Sisters” festival.  All the girls in the nearby areas will dress up formally with all their silver jewelry and head ornaments dancing in a parade along the main street of the town.  The main purpose is to make herself the prettiest to attract the boys…  The heavy silver ornaments are to show off the wealth of their family.

The mothers are busy to make sure their girls are the best…  This is the day of the mothers’ triumph!
