The world in the head - The donation of the Antoine de Galbert headdressesSold by Musée des Confluences
DescriptionFor some thirty years, Antoine de Galbert built up a collection of more than five hundred headdresses from around the world, which he donated in 2017 to the Musée des Confluences. In their diversity, these headdresses, helmets, toques, and bonnets testify to a simple fact: humanity covers its head.
Discovering their astonishing, sometimes spectacular forms, this richly illustrated catalog questions both their nature and the status of the individuals who wear them.
