Tatanua head

050714-black-and-white-4This is my entry for the Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Heads or Facial Features. Thanks Cee for hosting this challenge.

Tatanua masks are one of the most representative artistic representations of New Ireland (Pacific Ocean). It is decorated to represent hairstyle wearing young men as a mark of mourning, in which the hair was partially shaved and covered with lime. Each side of the ridge is decorated differently using shells, feathers, wool, seeds and pieces of wood. The crest is usually made with coconut fiber.

Materials: wood (carved polychrome), fiber, cloth, shell.

Late nineteenth century.

Seen in the Folch collection. Museu de Cultures del Món (Museum of World Cultures). Barcelona



I’ve selected these roses photographed yesterday afternoon for this Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close Ups.
