This series is about minorities in China

Yi minority
The ancestors of the Yi ethnic group can be traced back to the Qiang people living in northwest China. They later migrated south and joined the local southwest aboriginal and created a new group, the Yi ethnic group. The Yi people have their own language, which belongs to the Yi branch of the Zang-Mian Austronesian of Han-Zang Phylum. Yi characters, as the earliest syllabic script in China, were formed in the 13th century and are still used today. A number of works of history, literature and medicine as well as genealogies of the ruling families written in the old Yi script are still seen in most Yi areas.
Due to cultural and economic exchanges with the Han, more and more Yi people learn to use the Han language and characters in daily life. Most Yi people engage in agriculture and a small percentage of them raise livestock. People living in the plains take rice, maize, wheat and yams as their staple food while those in the frigid mountainous areas mostly depend on maize, buckwheat and yams. Complements to their main food source include vegetable, legume, fruits, pork, mutton and beef. Fierce warriors, the Yi evolved an aristocratic society. Even their slaves had slaves. They based their religion on the reading of sacred writings. The Yi are found mainly in the Yunnan Province and also in Sichuan, Guizhou Provinces and the Guangxi Autonomous Region. The Yi people in southern Yunnan live in two-story adobe houses. The kitchen and cattle shed are usually on the first floor, and the living room is on the second. The flat roof is used as a veranda. They are part of the Sino-Tibetan Tibeto-Burman ethno linguistic group.

I like the fly on her head-piece Ruud.
Very pleasant lady, she looks happy for you to take her photo. Pretty clothes and colours too.
The lighting looks a bit bright for her though.
Still, very well portrayed,

Hallo Ruud,
Wat een mooi portret! Het licht is precies ideaal en dat kostuum heerlijk. Fijn dat je er uitleg bij hebt gegeven - wordt gewaardeerd. Ooit in een ver verleden heb ik een scriptie over het vroege China geschreven omdat het me boeide (en nog steeds).
Hartelijke groet,

Het zonlicht in China kan echt medogenloos zijn!
Ook hier is dat heel duideijk.
de achtergrond en een deel van de kleding zijn over belicht. Wellicht had je een snellere sluitertijd kunnen gebruiken 1/200 is niet heel snel bij zulk helder zonlicht.
Dit alles neemt overigens niet weg, dat dit weer een prachtig portret is.
Mooie kleuren!


Hallo Ruud.
What a nice looking young lady this is.
She is really posing for you. Lovely colourful dressed she is.
Good portrait.
