"Most attention is given to the headdress. A crown of feather, eagle and parrot being most common, encricles the head. The feathers are attached to a basketry base which is often hidden by marsupial fur bands, bands made of yellow orchid stems and green beetles, or festoons of small cowrie shells. From the center of the head rises a flexible reed, two or even three feet long, to which is attached a plum made either from feathers or an entire stuffed bird." Rappaport, Roy. Ritual in the ecology of a New Guinea people. (Ph.D. thesis, Columbia, 1966) p. 310-311.
