Huli group

Huli men from the Southern Highlands are noted for their flamboyant appearance, face decoration, their use of birds of paradise plumes, yellow flowers, and moss to decorate human hair wigs. Huli wigs are made of human hair, decorated with cus-cus fur, birds of Paradise and Lorikeet feathers.
