In the artist’s own words: “The woman in the picture is a member of the indigenous hill tribes of northern Vietnam. When they are not taking care of their farm and family they walk into the town to sell their handicraft to tourists. Their ability to have this extra income and contact with visitors, some of them who learn English also offer guided tours, enhances their status in the village.”
