Cangyuan County in the southwestern part of Yunnan Province of my country is an area inhabited by the Wa people. Just here, on the steep cliffs on both sides of the lower reaches of the Mengdong River, there are preserved one of the oldest cliff paintings in my country, Cangyuan Cliff Painting. A total of ten painting spots have been discovered in Cangyuan Cliff Paintings, and more than 700 clearly distinguishable images of characters. Among them, almost all images of taller figures have headdresses (some also have tails), and the headdresses are very prominent, and the length of some headdresses even exceeds the length of the human body. The headdresses in Cangyuanya paintings are mostly horns, antlers, oxtails, deer tails, tiger tails, bird feathers, etc., especially horns headdresses. This situation is completely consistent with the records of Yunnan ethnic minorities in some ancient books. “Yunnan Zhi” said: “Wangju Ziman…clothes short armour with a yak tail in his pocket, galloping like flying, and his wife is like this.” “Song History · Barbarians IV” said: “The messenger wears tiger fur , Decorated with the head of the tiger’s tail.” In addition, many chronicles compiled during the Ming and Qing dynasties, for the Jinuo and Jingpo peoples, have records such as “wearing a bone ring, inserting chicken feathers, and wrapping red vines”. Headdresses of ethnic minorities in our country can be seen here.
Modern jewelry, materials are much simpler, limited to certain precious metals such as gold, silver and gold and silver alloy imitations and emeralds, jade, diamonds, gems, pearls, corals, wanderings, etc. In recent years, although plastic and ceramic jewelry have also begun to be produced, their popularity is low. Relatively speaking, the headdresses worn by ethnic minorities use much richer materials, and they do not necessarily pursue luxury. They use local materials and adjust measures to the times. To sum up, the materials used by ethnic minorities as headwear can be roughly divided into three categories: animals, plants, and minerals. In addition to the animal horns and feathers mentioned above, there are animal bones, animal teeth, shells, egg shells, crab claws, horse claws, and even some small animals. Plant headdresses include flowers, leaves, bamboo tubes, wood chips, sticks, moss, etc. There are even fruits. Mineral headgear includes various gravel, stone beads, stone flakes or metals such as copper, iron, gold, silver and so on. It can be seen that the headgear of ethnic minorities is also very diverse.
