"Important Papuanian / New Guinea Headdress"
I continue to get out of the boxes and cases acquired in the succession of our Pau scholar whose insatiable cosmopolitan curiosity continues to reveal surprises and many questions: some of the objects carried a label indicating the origin, which, to Internet time, we put them within a few clicks, here, it was not the case, but the object is so spectacular that it was easy to trace its origin.
It is therefore an important head ornament, originating from Papua / New Guinea, more particularly from the Sepic region. Superb work of weaving cords on which are fixed very many feathers "in mane", very fine and flexible, the "face" being made up of warthog teeth and cowries of different dimensions, cowries which one finds in decoration on the side fasteners.
About 40 X 45 X 2 cm.
Second half of the 20th century.
