This headpiece is made on a satin covered headband and sinamay base. It is adorned with a pair of pigeons wings, an adult pigeons head,nestled with a casting of a juvenile pigeon on a bed of fabric violets. The pigeon wing and head is covered in black fine glitter, representing ashes.

This is probably my favorite headpiece and definitely means the most to me. My father kept pigeons when I was young, he would send them off on long races and sometimes they won. He adored his pigeons. My father died when I was 15 which broke my heart and changed my life forever. Many people think pigeons are vermin but I love them and I always thought that is we did come back again once we die then maybe he would come back as a pigeon.

(no animals were killed for the purpose of creating this headpiece.. I only use animal materials that would otherwise be thrown away. I believe wasting any part of an animal is disrespectful to Mother Nature)
