Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-20
Tribal Portrait VI by ~Genevieve-Amelia The suggester writes: The artist has created an incredible headdress artwork. Using ornate feathers, a “tattooed” animal skull, beads and jewelry it invokes New Orleans Mardi Gras pageantry "voodoo" headdresses used for celebrations and rituals. Be sure to check out the two other works in this series. ( Suggested by nine9nine9 and Featured by maytel )

Amazing. I love the look of a vintage (1940s-1950s) movie actress coupled with the modern primitive headdress. I think it's genius!
