Caption:

To the trained eye these two women tell a story. Both wear the skirt of San Idelfonso, however the woman on the left wears a different head-band and huipil from the neighboring community of Petzal. She may have married into a San Idelfonso family yet through her dress, she preserves aspects of her heritage.
