This young woman proudly displays an elaborate native costume. The bright blue feathers are from hyacinth macaws. The loin cloth and headdress are adorned by feathers from other macaw species plus parrots and toucans. The accouterments consist of animal teeth, claws and nails as well as chiseled stones. The jewelry was made from forest seeds and berries. The Tupi people were best known for creating such elaborate attire. This type of apparel was reserved for rituals and celebrations plus pre and post wars. On an everyday basis, most indigenous people were naked or only donned loin cloths during the pre-Columbian era.
