For Thea

When I stumbles across this piece by the japanese fashion design house Nechia, I was reminded of prior research into the origins of Hussar military jackets, which many theorize were abstractions of the skeleton, intended to create fear and horror in the opponent on the battle field. Following the image of a British Hussar is a photo of a body-paint tradition in the Mount Hagen region of Papua New Guinea.
