'Dhari' Torres Strait Islander Headdress by Darren Compton: 65cm x 55cm
By Darren Compton

Dhari is the Meriam (Mer) word for ‘headdress’. Customarily made and worn by males, Dhari were traditionally made from Frigate Bird and Torres Strait Pigeon feathers. Darren’s Dhari is made with goose feathers, cane, red twine and dowel.
Darren Compton is a proud descendant of Bundjalung, Munanjali, Gamillaraay nations of the mainland, and the Mer people of the Torres Strait. He is inspired by Yaputhung Nalung, his mother’s heart beat and the ground beneath his feet.
