Amazing pictures show what life is like inside the rarely-seen Kayan tribe of Myanmar.

Women stall their necks using nine-inch brass coils which they begin wearing at just five-years-old.

However, one of the striking photos showed an elderly woman with a neck measuring over seven inches in length as she proudly displayed her golden neckbands that can weigh as much as 13-pounds collectively and are made out of copper or bronze.

Similarly, another image captured three young girls keeping the tradition alive as they posed in traditional clothing.

The pictures were reportedly shot in Kayah, Myanmar, by professional photographer Andrey Gudkov, 48, from Moscow.
