Hello John! A beautiful and very interesting picture. So much detail ... What kind of construction? And what makes this woman? Best regards, Julia

John Adamson on October 4, 2008

Hello Julia, Thanks for your nice comments. This is a traditional house in Toraja area of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The houses are of wood construction and as you can see of unique design. I will post a photo of a Toraja Village if I have one here. Many of my photos are in New Zealand. It looks as if the woman is preparing rice for storage or maybe she has just taken it out of storage. The photo was taken long ago and I don't remember.

Thanks for your continued interest. Best wishes, John

Thanks for the story john, this structure is very surprising and unusual for mee. I scan it with great interest. I look forward to your new shots! Cheers, Julia

Thanks for your feedback Juila, unfortunately I don't have other photos of Toraja villages here but will bring them from New Zealand at end of this year.

Best wishes, John
