Among many Kazakh traditions is the ancient art of eagle hunting.
For more than two centuries, Kazakh men have hunted on horseback
with trained golden eagles. Across mountains and steppes, a large
variety of animals – including rabbits, marmots, foxes and even wolves –
are hunted for their fur, an integral part of traditional Kazakh clothing.
The skill of training a golden eagle is passed on through generations.
Eagle hunters wear boots, black coats and fox-fur hats called loovuuz.
Huli, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea
The traditional highland apparel is scant: women wear grass skirts, men
wear nothing but a koteka, or penis gourd. However, to impress and scare
off the enemy, men go to considerably more effort.
The largest highland tribe are the Huli Wigmen, who paint their faces
yellow, red, and white. and are famous for their tradition of making
ornamental wigs from their own hair. These look like plumed hats,
intricately decorated with feathers of birds of paradise and parrots.
Other ornaments include shells, beads, pig tusks, hornbill skulls

ears either going down to the chin or sticking up at the top,
long joined eyebrows attached to the top of the ears, horns and

respect for the wonders of nature.
