Caption:

Dental care in the highlands has not reached a highly evolved state. Most village elders have a few gaps in their smiles. Rotten teeth are extracted; there is no preventative care. 

This woman's huipil is a stunning example of fine craftsmanship. All geometric patterns and details have been woven, not embroidered.
