George Nona Mai Niu Dhoerie - The Pearl Shell Headdress 2015
Seabird feathers, cassowary feathers, pandanus fibre, little cowrie shells, pods & pearl shell

This dhoerie is a mimic, when you throw a pearl shell into the sea, when it touches the water, it has a weaving motion going to the bottom. That motion is mimicked in a dance where this dhoerie is worn.
