Three girls laugh and dance at "El Festival de la Pollera" (The Pollera Festival). "La Pollera" is Panama┬┤s female typical dress, sewed by hand by a traditional process taught from generation to generation. In their heads, the "Tembleques" crown the females head with colored beads, fish scales, and gold ornamental combs.

Location: Las Tablas, Los Santos Province, Panama
