Authentic Bamileke Headdress made with feathers from wild foul.
The Bamileke Headdress is traditionally used in festivals and ceremonies by the Bamileke people of Cameroon.
Often named a juju hat in decor worlds.
Both delicate and dramatic, this unique piece looks stunning hung on a wall as part of a larger collection or simply on its own.
The fourth photo shows the side view and back of the hat. It has a black backer that the feathers are tied into and stands off the wall. Something to be mindful of when hanging. The black will be noticeable depending on the angle you see this piece of art in the home. Some shedding when moving is normal however they do not shed when untouched on the wall. A light vacuum keeps the piece dust free.
Size: 28" diameter, approx. 7" depth off wall
Imported from Cameroon
