Poised in colorful elegance, a girl models the legendary costume of the Karen hill tribe people. Oraphat depicts her in bright colors and a charming naïf style. The Karen are renowned for their colorful weaves, which distinguish each subgroup within the Karen population of Thailand and Burma. Hospitable out of caution, the Karen believe that if a family does not offer hospitality to a visitor, he in turn will be angered and might set a curse on the family or steal a family member's soul. The Karen are renowned for their weaving skills and dress code, for single women are expected to dress with loose V-neck blouses whereas married women are allowed colorful skirts and blouses, usually in red and blue.
