I post a magnificent Saisiyat headdress held in the Taichung National Museum of Prehistory (Taiwan) drawna as I was to similarities between the framework with that of Pamela's Yao headdress http://www.tribaltextiles.info/community/viewtopic.php?t=1157&highlight=yao+headdress. The draping of the main handwoven material embellished with red pompoms, embroidered flowers and silver discs is somewhat different to the Yao/Mien headdress mentioned. At nearly a metre in height there is some significant balance ability required! The following link to a Saisiyat Pasta’ay festival held in Wufeng shows similiar headdresses (and costumes) being worn during one of the dances http://blog.taiwan-guide.org/2008/11/pa ... in-wufeng/

Very interesting idea, iain, to make a comparison with Pamela's Yao headress!
The balance problem you mentioned was so difficult to deal with that, finally, this ornament for the Pastay Festival (held every two years) is not anymore a headdress. After having been placed on the shoulders for some time, the one meter high structure is now hold in the hands. See the pictures.
