Headdress

Physical description

Headdress on four posts with overall conical shape, a spiked rim and four evenly spaced bands of spikes made with leaves running up the bottom tier, four arms with double sarrated edges at the top of the bottom tear each protruding out at an angle with dangling elongated shapes at the tips, and the tip is ornamented with fibre that splays outwards just below a guft of short brown and white feathers and two long, curved black feathers. The posts are covered with fibres attached around each post just below the rim of the headdress. The headdress is clay painted with off-white, reddish-brown and black geometric designs.
