a superb kayapo mekragnoti Indians headdress , Rio Xingu, states of Para and Mato Grosso, Brazil . The Tiara is mounted on a long cotton woven adorned with long tail-feathers macaw chloroptera. At the end are attached little white feathers great egret. Wearing this diadem requires the use of either, a support disk on the back of the head or of a reed hoop to present this important headdress .This is rather rare to have such a headdress with the reed hoop, 140cm high collected in the sixties by a belgian collector .A certificate with the picture of the identity card of the previous owner joining the picture of the headdress shall be gift.Also the exchange of e mail with the ministry of environnement stating all the feathers are annexe B and dont need cites certificate . a wonderful example
