Description: Burma image, WA1246. Nung Naushawngs dancing. [Nung Manau dance leaders dancing.] (Researcher's notes in brackets).
"A Manao-Manao, called Adzu Lam E, is occasionally held. It is probably copied from the Hkahkus but it is not so complicated. When held, the decorated horns of a mythun are placed at the Akaw Ta Tung Lam Quan in the house. Only three Manao Shadaws [manau posts] are erected. Their decoration differs from that of the Hkahkus and is even more Indonesia in type. The dance is also different and has much more go in it. The dancers hold their arms out and jerk them at the wrists. Dumsas and elders lead the dance, wearing their Naga type of helmets. Hornbills' and pheasants' feather, so popular with the Hkahkus and Kachins, are not worn." [dissertation, 1934:199-200]
