A beautiful contrast of colors and textures, this fantastic feather headdress is a woven hat of the Inca period, (c. 1460-1532). The style of the fez-shaped hat originated in the Aymara culture of northern Chile and displays a stepped, geometric pattern created by coil-weaving with dyed alpaca yarn. The hat on its own would have been worn as an everyday garment, but the addition of a decorative plume of vibrant feathers suggests that this piece would have been the final adornment of an Inca mummy bundle. Simply displayed on a custom steel mount, the burst of feathers provides a sense of movement and turns the piece into a captivating sculptural object.

Headdress comes with a custom acrylic case. Washing stone display stand pictured is not included.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
