Replica Stone Age Shaman headdress

Region: Nationwide
Location: UK


My interpretation of the Shaman headdress from the grave found in Bad Dürrenberg (Germany) in the 1930's. The replica is made from similar animal bones, as found in the German grave: the skin is coyote (Canis latrans); the antlers are from a European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus); two large wild boar tusks (Sus scrofa) appear on either side and below are hung bone beads, neolithic stone beads and six wolf fangs (Canis lupus). Around the brim of the headdress are a number of water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) teeth and goose feathers complete the look. The necklace is made from seven large wild boar tusks (Sus scrofa) and severn water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) teeth attached to leather strips.
