ENIGMATIC EKORI HEADDRESS, HIMBA TRIBE NAMIBIA SW AFRICA ( No 3983)

This is an epic womans headdress from the Himba people of Namibia, an ekori. (I think they are the most stylish people on the planet!) Comprised of leather and recycled metal which is totally covered in their reknowned otjize paste, which mixes butterfat and ochre pigment. Three pert animal ears form the 'crown.' The rest is draped leather hood, with leather and recycled metal bead straps. A rare find. In good used tribal condition. Metal stand not included. We guarantee this item has been tribally used. Height of headdress/hat approx 55 cm.
