Rare Prestige Hat

Azande, DRC

20. Rare Prestige Hat. Azande Culture, DRC


Azande hats, of any form, are rare on the market. Strands of plant fibre have been plaited and woven to create this fine Azande prestige hat, consisting of a square-shaped top with four prominent corners.

Early published examples of similar forms of hats have been attributed to the Mangbetu; the neighbouring culture of the Azande in the north eastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A beautiful wavy pattern, created from woven strands of darker natural fibre, decorates the rim of the hat.

Ex Private Collection, Italy
