Description: Burma image, WA0255a. Image of object in World Art collection. [Crowds dancing at Namhkyek manau.] (Researcher's notes in brackets)
This monochrome photographic print is showing crowds dancing at the Namhkyek Manau. Manau is a kind of cummunal festival celebrated by the Kachin community in Burma (Myanmar). Sometimes thousands of people attend a large Manau festival, all of whom would expect to be fed and given rice beer for the whole four days that a festival would usually last.

This photograph was taken by James Henry Green in the 1920s, a recruiting officer for the Burma Rifles who spent more than twenty years in Burma, much of it based in the northern hill states.
