A good day! I just received this beauty, a dha from the hill tribes of Kachin, northern Burma. It doesn’t have any of the screaming bling decor that most collectors would go wow over. So why am I so happy? It has got quality. It is complete. In near pristine condition, with just the right patina and denting. It is an honest representative of its culture. Its maker had skill, all is how it needs to be. It’s a hefty fighting piece that handles well, and was probably carried with pride by a tribesman. All combined, it has got substance. Something that a lot of the more decorative pieces, however beautiful, are often lacking.
