Papua new Guinea May River Black Palm Fiber Hat

$47.60 $56.00

This is a really interesting Black Palm and plant fiber Frame Headdress used for dancing from the people along the May River in Papua New Guinea. This frame is like a building block on which they can create their own their own individual and stylized headdresses. The feather are attached to this bark or a palm cloth base. These magnificent constructions are dense with colorful feathers from cassowary birds, black iridescent rooster tail feathers and all the other exotic colored birds feathers; as well as ,Red Abrus seeds, Nassa shells, Flower Beetles. Making a headdress is one of the first tasks that a man undertakes on coming of age, and is a long-term undertaking, because each man has to comb the forest on his own to find the feathers that will decorate his headdress. A great conversation piece and a wonderful addition to your collection.
