Qashqai Headdress


Courtesy of the Odell Collection.

Originally located in Turkey by Sun Bow in the early 1980s, this Qashqai beaded camel headdress features images of imperial Persian lions.

Note, the pom poms are not used just for decoration, but are also intended to distract evil intention.

Dated to 1900.
