Oh That old Headdress


Both editions of this months Real Living and Inside Out featured houses with this beautiful pinky/red puff ball of feathers on the walls. I think it was the colour that initially struck me, but was intrigued when I read that it was a west african headdress. I would love to see what it actually looks like in real life, I am sure something this beautiful most be worth a fortune, but I might have to do a little hunting down myself, just in case!
