Sangay washes her feet with water from a gourd before attending a religious festival at the local temple in Shingkhey village. This is part of the two-day ceremony--or pujo--that is held every year to bless the village. To a continuous background of chanting, the monks fill the valley with long, slow, deep notes from their horns. Shingkhey, Bhutan. Published in Material World: A Global Family Portrait, page 79.
