Suki-kammuri (透冠)

Type of headgear. A black crown used by male gods who perform a divine dance, such as in “Takasago”, its shape is similar to that of the to-kamuri, a replica of an ancient Chinese crown, with the back-half skirt made higher and larger than the front half, and horizontal oval wings protruding on either side. The name Suki-kammuri (literally, transparent crown) comes from the arabesque patterns cut out of the leather material. The crown is finished with a coat of black lacquer.
