Product Description

From the home of a private collector, this fascinating example of a ceremonial headress, referred to as amatherentsi, is worn by Asháninka (or Asháninca) men for festive celebrations that include dancing.  It is made of the straw of the coca palm, the reeds being held held together by threads.  The reeds are interwoven with colorful threads to create further designs on the band of the hat.  Beautifully decorated bird feathers dance around the top edge.  Handmade by the Ashaninka.
