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.
