Shaman's crown like headdress with antler shape decoration was spread around Siberia peoples. On this headgear one can see the metal frame with the circular felt cap, covered with red cotton. A piece of wire is strained between the antler on which jingle-bells, multicolor ribbons and strings of seed-beads are fastened.
