Huli wigman smoking, Papua New Guinea<br />
<br />
The tribes of New Guinea are all highly distinctive. Adorned in crimson and saffron body paint, the Huli wigmen are some of the most colorful. They wear heirloom human-hair wigs, turned down like umbrellas. The wigs are decorated with the wings and tails of innumerable bird of paradise species, tree kangaroo fur, ferns, and lichen. A Union Jack is a point of color on this man’s elaborate wig headdress. He is also wearing necklaces made from cowries and smooth black cassowary quills.
