The rings round her body are made of hoops of cane, round which little brass rings are arranged close together, so that none of the cane is visible.. These hoops are worn next to the body, above the waist and over the petticoat below. The silver coins fastened to this brass corset, and worn as belts around it, are the silver coins of the country. The petticoat is a broad strip of cloth, sewn together at the ends and having an opening at the top and bottom. It is fastened at the waist with a piece of string.
