Yunnan Provincial Museum

People of the Wa ethnic minority group values red and black. So they love to wear black clothes with red embellishment, and still keep the dressing features of ancient mountainous groups. The Wa women are usually adorned with distinctive accessories, the most eye-catching one of which is the about 3 cm-wide silver hair loop that arranges the long hair. They also like to wear big ring-shaped earrings, wide bracelets, narrow vine circles, reflecting the outgoing, unrestrained characters of the Wa people.
