AS536: Yami Helmet

A rare 19th century Yami helmet for ceremonial use. Compared to the Yami war helmets this one is much more finely woven with tight and intricate workmanship. The Yami are the indigenous peoples of Orchid Island off the coast of Taiwan. They are now know as the "Tao" people. The light patina suggest it was kept put away in a box rather then up in the smokey rafters of the hut.    

13" diameter by 8" Tall. 19th century, Orchid Island, Taiwan.    ....$2200.00
