A KAYAPÓ-XIKRIN TRIBE LONG HOOP HEADDRESS, ÀKKÀTI 

First half 20th century

Worn on the back suspended from the forehead by a tump-line, these are made of small white egret feathers attached to the radial plumes of red and blue tail feathers of different macaw species. The feathers radiate from a channelled and bowed split- cane frame. This headdress is amongst the largest in the Amazon lowlands and forms a nimbus for the whole upper body of the dancer who carries it.

A TAPIRAPÉ UPÉ (ENEMY WARRIOR) MASK 

First half 20th century

Now worn during harvest festivals, these semi-circular wooden masks representing a spirit, are made of blue, yellow and scarlet macaw feathers affixed to a wood panel with beeswax. They have a split border into which a fringe, the spirit’s headdress, is inserted. The fringing feather diadem “unzips” for separate storage. The central cross of blue and yellow is derived from the colours of the Brazilian flag. The rectangular eyes are made of freshwater mother of pearl, the teeth of bone and the roundels of feathers and mother of pearl on the cheeks are actually meant to represent the figure’s earplugs, moved inward on the face by artistic convention. The Tapirapé is a lowland tribe in the state of Pará.
