Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

This week theme

The Peranakan, a rich hybrid of Chinese and Malay traditions with the touch of Portuguese, Dutch and Indonesian influences. The culture refers men as ‘baba’ and ladies, ‘nyonya’ or ‘bibik for older women. This is the Peranakan traditional wedding costume donned on the bride. Geometric layering around  at her neck is the phoenix collar to symbolise the power of the feminine phoenix in Peranakan society.
