"These are the vestments in which the lama priests officiate at the various religious ceremonies. The magnificent headdress is of camel's hair, the crest being of wool. This when new stands up stiffly like the crest of a Roman helmet to which the whole headdress bears a strong resemblance." - Miles pg. 26
