Title

Consecration: Two women preparing to chew dried betel-nut, 1987

Description

Two lay women preparing to chew the dried betel-nut kept in the silver tins. The betel-nut is placed in a leaf of tobacco, spread with a pink lime paste that activates the ingredients of the betel-nut, then folded into a square and placed between the cheek and gum. This "pastime" is very popular among the women who generally do not smoke.
