L.F. ox. Man's felt head-dress. Brown felt skull-cap, with back forming angular ear-flaps. On L. are five plumes. Four are composed of wooden skewer-like sticks about ro" long, round upper parts of which feathers are bound with white thread over-wrapped with crimson woollen cord. The fifth, which is prob. the front one, is a long quill hafted on to a short skewer. All are threaded by their lower ends into the felt, and stand up with a backward cant.

A piece of wood is also laid across the sticks at height of 4" and bound to them, acting as a spreader. On cap is also the skin of a rodent, prob. mongoose, fastened to it (in some way not apparent) by crimson cord, and prob. forming crest.

One plume is stuck horizontally through the branch, and the mongoose skin is in position as crest. A tuft of rich brown feathers of extremely fine texture is also stuck in point of crown.
