Black and white picture of the early fifties showing a Kayan Lahwi woman * at the age of 13, when she started to wear the coils. The Long Neck Kayan (also called Padaung in Burmese) are a sub-group of the Karen ethnic from Burma. They wear spiral coils around their neck and lower legs. They are also nicknamed ""giraffe womenâ. œ. The neck itself is not lengthened; the appearance of a stretched neck is created under the pressure of the collar, the ribs lower and the shoulders and clavicles collapse. Pan Pet region, Kayah state, Myanmar.
