Minangkabau crown for bride
Mid 20th Century. Indonesia.

from Minangkabau bride (Sumatra). Its value depends on the number of wire which makes the structure, as well as the total weight. Gold crowns can reach 1,5 Kg (3 pounds). This one is from gilt metal. Its framework is large with 23 wire. Today, few persons are able to make such as crown (this suntiang is about 40 years old). Wearing this heavy hair ornament was a great moment but terribly tiring for the bride. | Creative Museum
