Tibetank Skirt, Heaven Lake by Lisa Kristine

Tibetank Skirt, Heaven Lake

The Drokpas, or nomads, are a visible presence in this province bordering the Himalayas of India. They travel in groups of families. The men tend to the yaks in the grasslands while women make butter and cheese. They also weave and tan sheep and yak skins used to make garments to protect them from the fierce Himalayan winters. Heaven Lake, also known as Namtso, is at a high altitude. Tibet’s harsh climate gives its children their ruddy cheeks. This boy clings to his mother’s striped apron which indicates she is married.
