Details:From headdresses and helmets to turbans and crowns, explore the vital role of ceremonial headwear throughout diverse cultural customs, beliefs, and rituals. Transcending utilitarian purposes, each head covering is a work of art, showcasing skill and creativity in conveying meaning. In a profusion of shapes and styles, materials, and embellishments, these hats and headdresses communicate beauty, the diversity of the world’s cultures, and ideas shared throughout humanity. Featuring headwear from forty-three countries spanning Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America, most date from the mid to late 20th century and many types are still worn today for revelry, ritual, and the rhythms of everyday life. Headwear’s usage and purposes reveal shared themes: cultural identity; power, prestige, and status; ceremonies and celebrations; spiritual beliefs; and protection. White wedding veils of the West symbolize purity, for example, and Vietnamese brides’ open-crowned red turbans symbolize good fotune. Discover intriguing parallels that exist within ceremonial objects from diverse societies.
