Default The bride

A mannequin on a Chinese museum. Brides were not expected to show their faces. I zoomed in a little and the Lumix did everything.
Would you marry her?

Sorry the delay Hercules. Pick is in a chinese museum but can't remember the city. Could be in the surroundings of Chengdu. And yes: this is how brides of a "certain social class" (you can see the expensive silk clothes) presented themselves.

Could the trick be 'yüzgörümlügü' in Turkish, a present given by the bridegroom to the bride to convince her to unveil her face before the bridal chamber
