Description: Burma image, WA0597. [A group of Kachin women with baskets crossing the bamboo bridge.] (Researcher's notes in brackets)
A wooden yoke is used by men when carrying loads. It has a brow band attached and the support of the load can be transferred from shoulders to brow at will. The yoke is not used by women who carry everything in their ?shingno? back basket. The basket is suspended from a brow band which is at times, however, placed around the upper arms and chest. Pigs or other articles which cannot conveniently be placed in a basket are attached to a bamboo framework which is carried on the back. Water is carried by the women in bamboos? [dissertation, 1934:144-145]
