This headdress ornament reveals a considerable flair for showmanship through its size and many suspended parts, which would have swayed and glittered with the wearer's motion. Like many other Yotoco ornaments, it features an enigmatic human face with closed eyes, a huge nose ornament that hides the lower face, and great disks that dangle from the ears.
