2015 Mayan Headdress
A collaborating with the super talented Tracy Widdess of Brutal Knitting and Julio Gonzalez to create a Mayan inspired headdress.
The headdress is that of a scribe. The Maya believed Itzamna, a celestial serpent and patron of writing, invented writing. Itzamna taught writing to a rabbit who in turn taught it to monkey men and the old god, Pawatun, and they in turn taught writing to humans.
The scribes headdress served many purposes such as, carrying the tools of their trade, food and adornment made from native plants and wild life.
