GENUINE VERY RARE KONYAK Naga Headdress.
This is a very old and rare Headdress from the konyak headhunter tribe.
Unlike many other Naga headdresses available which are used for ceremonial
purposes this example was used in ritual.
The base is woven palm fiber decorated with many eagle Feathers, domesticated
buffalo horn, and skull as center piece. There are chains of beads lining the
entire width of the hat.
Very impressive and fierce presence.
This is a very rare example which is almost impossible to find in situ. The
exact age is unknown.
Very strong patina which shows the many years of traditional hut housing.
Age related wear exists, one small horn is missing which is covered by the
feathers and please see photos for other.
Size 40cm x 35cm
