Quite dramatic! 🙂
I really am fascinated by HeadDresses. This one is extremely beautiful!
~Hello Grace!…Welcome…On Behalf of the Maker of This HeadDress,Claudia Gray, Thank You/Welalin~
Exquisite work. Once upon a time I worked as a fire-lookout man on a tower in northern BC. A porcupine occupied my outhouse, huge fellow and quite intransigent. I didn’t want to hurt him but really needed to use the space he occupied. Finally I threw my woolen jacket at him – that moved him temporarily and in recovering my jacket I found it full of quills. Later I heard from a local indigenous chap that this is the way quills are obtained…
~Hi John!…Sounds Like the Safest Way to Obtain Quills…Some Type of Medicine is Obtained from the Porcupine’s Quills…I can’t seem to Remember the Process Entailed to “make” the Medicine,tho~
LOL, what a great story, John!
~Hi Leslee!…The Traditional HeadDress was made by a Friend of mine, Miss Claudia Gray…We, Listuguj, had a “Inauguration Ceremony” today (Friday) and Claudia Gifted this HeadDressto Our Newly Elected Chief Dean Vicaire…It is Totally Shaped by BirchBark…The Design is Made with Dyed Porcupine Quills…There is Fur and Eagle Feathers that Top this Highly Original Piece…Has some Sort of Spirit Magic about It…Exquisite and EmPowering… 🙂 ~
It is very powerful and magical… Almost feels like it has a shape-shifter quality to it!
~You are Very Attuned!… 😉 ~
There’s a whole universe behind that veil of bark! Ok, off to sleep for me… See you soon, Baba! 😀
Beautiful, Babajij! Is that Birch bark? Can you please tell us more about it (and did you make it?)?
