A worker holds a piece of snake skin after a colouring process at a factory that produces bags at Comal...
A worker holds a piece of snake skin after a colouring process at a factory that produces bags at Comal district in Pekalongan, Indonesia's Central Java province February 9, 2013. The snake skins to the factory are provided by Wakira, also known as "Boss Cobra", who owns a slaughterhouse that produces snake meat and skin. Snake meat is believed by some to be a remedy for skin diseases and asthma, as well as an aid to increase virility. The skin of the snakes are used to make bags, shoes, wallets and belts. Wakira employs ten workers and earns up to 15 million rupiah ($ 1,562) a month from the factory's production. The snake skins, measuring in the hundreds of metres, are sold to bag factories in the West and Central Java provinces on a monthly basis. The price of a bag made from snake skin costs between 150,000 rupiah ($ 15.60) and 300,000 rupiah ($ 31.20), depending on its size. Picture taken February 9, 2013.
