A formal picture of Lombok royalty

This #Tropenmuseum picture shows Lombok royalty with a slave. The picture is relevant because from the position of the Lombok culture, there is / was nothing wrong with bare breasts; bare legs is a different thing.

This picture is tagged with Female toplessness in Indonesia. Such a category reflects Western values and it is bound to be used at some stage to censor pictures like these.

This picture of three topless women in Sain Martin are of Western women, one with a piercing through a nipple. It is their freedom to go topless but from a cultural point of view they are topless while the Lombok royal has bare breasts.
Thanks,
