is simplicity itself. (Scanned ahead a bit, and noted some commentary
about wire and framework and so forth, and I'm betting that it's
either non-existant in that headress, or minimal. Well, time and a
bit more experimenting will tell.)
It *does* look like fat water buffalo horns; I don't disagree with
you, there, but I think the shape that's cut out and then sewn and
whatever'd into that "horned" headdress is a slightly elongated
oblong, and I was referring to the shape of the piece of fabric, and
not the finished three-dimensional shape of the hat/headdress.
I'd also assumed that the "cut shape" was what Samia was asking
about---my bad if I got that part wrong.
