In light of today's news from the Ukraine and Russia, I wanted to go back into why I started ADORN.
I am fascinated by our sameness. Because that emphasizes our oneness.
Throughout the ages, we have been exhibiting our cultures on our heads.Tibetan princess, mid 1800's. Empress Theodora, Byzantium, 500 CE.
Below is a headdress from Russia on the left, Ukraine on the right.
BOTH cultures wore them up to the last century, BOTH were ornate, BOTH had much the same color palette, BOTH emphasized and housed a woman's most important beauty point: her BRAIN.
Shouldn't cooler HEADS prevail?Below are the following headdresses: Native American, Indian, Burmese, Hungarian, Zulu.
