photo of a long necked woman of tha ton, thailand
Long Neck Woman
The village of Tha Ton, along the border of Thailand and Myanmar, is home to the "Long Necked Women". They are part of the Karen Tribe of people that also live in Myanmar to the north. From the time the girls in this tribe are very young, they begin wearing brass rings around their necks. More rings are added as the girls grow, causing the collar bone to be suppressed. It is this that gives these women the illusion of having long necks.
