~ Detail photo ~

A nice example of the Naga head hunter's cap, woven of rattan strips, and embellished with goat hair, and boar tusks. Absolutely genuine. This would be a fine addition to anyone's ethnographic collection - especially if you collect head hunter regalia.

The photo below is isolated from some video I shot in a remote Naga village. Now days, except for on festival occasions it is mostly the elders of the tribe who still dress traditionally on a day to day basis. He is wearing a hat that is similar in style and construction to the one on auction here.
