This is a one of a kind piece of wearable art made for the Five and Diamond Eighth Annual Headgear Art Show and shown on June 12, 2020.

Corviid's aesthetic has always incorporated some sense of the apocalyptic, so this year's show felt like a good time to embrace it more than ever. The original meaning of apocalypse is not just an ending but an unveiling of truth, and this global crisis is indeed showing us the truth of how broken our society is so that we can rebuild in a better image. Corviid incorporates the themes of apocalypse and death because they signify hope and renewal disguised in a darker sensibility. This headgear piece, like all of their art, uses multiple mediums including sculpture, casting, painting, wirework, and assemblage.


This piece can be worn with the Warrior of the Wastes Mask (SOLD) or worn separately. Mask sold separately here.

  • Designed by Corviid
  • One of a kind
  • Unisex

MATERIALS USED

Resin, fabric, acrylic paint, metal findings & studs, chain, wire, fabric.

WEARING INSTRUCTIONS

"Spine tail" should hang down the back of the head. The front should sit positioned like a widow's peak. The overall arc of the piece is adjustable. Bend it gently by holding onto the fabric base AND vertebrae at the same time (there is a wire going through the vertebrae that will hold the shape you give it) so that it fits snugly on the head. The fabric strings hanging down can be tied in back to further secure the piece.

Easiest way to put it on: place hands inside piece, with fabric base resting on your fingers. Lift piece up and onto head, with your hands parting on either side of your head (this will ensure the chains on each side do not get in your way). It is best to have the fabric strings tied loosely with your hands in front of them, so that when you place the headdress on, this ends up behind your head, and then you can simply tighten them to fit.

If worn with a mask: place the mask on first before putting on headdress.
