Counterweight: New Guinea Art Exhibit Photo

Miao and Dong Minority Tribes, Guizhou Province, Li Pin area, China. These stunning three-dimensional back ornaments are worn as counterweights to the multiple layers of necklaces worn by women who often wear them in combination with tribal silver neck rings. They are also used as counterweights to hand-woven baby carriers.
