Teenage girl at the Litang Horse festival, Tibet, in traditional Tibetan ceremonial costume from this region. The jewelry in her costume is probably worth over a hundred thousand dollars/euros, and is the main store of wealth for her family. These ornaments will be handed down from generation to generation.  If the Litang Horse Festival hadn't been banned for political reasons in 2008, then people who travel there might have been able to meet her. Seems she was at the festival most years.
