Traditional Peacock Costume in Tibetan

Photo taken in December 2012 shows the traditional Tibetan Peacock costume in Burang County, Ali Prefecture of Tibet Autonomous Region. The peacock costume is the finest one of the “Burang Costumes” which has more than one thousand years history. In the eyes of the Tibetan, peacock costumes is the symbol of beauty and good luck. Now people seldom see the Burang Costumes because it is too precious to wear easily, unless in grand festival celebration. Decorations of the clothes are made of gold, silver, tophus, carnelian, coral, and pearl, so every suit of Burang Costume is worth hundreds of thousands of yuan, even millions.
