This woman belongs to ethnic dolong, one of the last remaining that still bears on the face tattoos that were once done on the face of women for fear that they could kidnap the neighboring ethnic groups. Dolong people believe in their animist native religion. There is a belief that all the creatures have their own souls.

Location: Yunnan-China
