THE EYEBALL HEADDRESS
The Fluxus Indians wore a lot of different hats, helmets, masks and headdresses. Each major occasion and ritual had special headdresses. Few authentic examples have survived.
|A rare survivor is the EYEBALL HEADDRESS.** The Headdress was worn at numerous Fluxus celebrations and parades. A doll wearing an Eyeball Headdress was also a favorite among Fluxus children (see Fluxus Eye Doll). Unfortunately, little else is known about the meaning, significance or use of this appealing mask.|
|** An anonymous San Francisco rock band, The Residents, is known for its use of a similar headdress.|
