About the Artwork: The women of this ethnic minority in China wear massive headdresses to honor the dead. They wrap linen, wool and the "accumulated hair of their ancestors" over cattle horns, to make these helmets. Of course, the longer the lineage, the larger the headdress.

 

“I created this series of indigenous portraits to celebrate the diversity and unique tribal beauty found across the globe. Societal ideals and ideas of what is beautiful vary among cultures. One group’s perfection can often seem extreme to others. However, it is in these unique displays that we see that we are all not so different, after all. We are all ONE TRIBE.” —John Peaspanen
