Man in headdress with marsupial fur, strands of shells and insects
"Most attention is given to the headdress. A crown of feathers, eagle nad parrot being most common, encircles the head. The feathers are attached to a basketry base which is often hidden by marsupial fur bands, bands made of yellow orchid steams and green bettles, or festoons of small cowrie shells." Rapport, Roy. Ritual in the ecology of a New Guinea people. PhD dissertation, Columbia University, 1966. p. 311.
