This richly embellished garment, which embodies layers of spiritual and military meaning, would have been worn by a man of great stature on ceremonial occasions. The red ocher paint on the upper half represents an aspect of holy power. The rolled fringes made from ermine pelts hanging from the arms and chest, together with the human hair on the flaps at the neck, signify bravery and victory over the enemy.
