Decorative Tribal Hat from Nagaland
A traditional hat from Nagaland made from coloured woven rattan decorated with tusks.
A dramatic piece of headwear from Nagaland, north eastern India.
The hat is made from a pliable woven rattan some of which has been dyed a vibrant red with yellow trim. The same red colour has been applied to the spine of hair tufts, possibly wild boar, that run the length of the hat. Further dramatic decoration includes two curved boar tusks that flank the side of the hat. Stunning!
