«Plains Feather War Bonnet » (SKU 2878.09.01) is exclusively my own design and is not a replica of any original Indian or other headdress. Being a true metalhead and metal music fan, I'd been cherishing it's idea for a long time, collecting the right materials, and in 2009 I decided to sacrifice my favorite motorcycle jacket to make a skull cap, then I attached the feathers, put on a bunch of crosses and skulls and finally patinated metal parts to give the bonnet a more brutal look. I think that the idea had a great success, because for a couple of years, while «Plains Feather War Bonnet » was exposed for the public, it was continually borrowed for a number of art and advertising photo shoots.
