FEEJEE La Freak Headdress is an Unusual and highly detailed accessory delicately handmade to capture the Unfathomable Oddities and beauty of The Freak Show In the Mid-16th-20th Century. This Exotic Headdress emulates the deep seas and oceans with gorgeous hand Sculpted Waves, Exotic Horn Shells, Tulip Shells, Plump Seaweed, Ceramic Seahorses, Playful Starfish, Gem Encrusted Nacella Shells and a bit of Ocean trash to finish the look off.
This headdress was inspired by The Freak Show which was an exhibiton of freaks, monstrosities and marvels of nature, an essential component of travelling exhibition in Europe and America throughout the Victorian Period. In July 1842, an English gentleman named Dr. J. Griffin, Said to be a member of the British Lyceum of Natural History, arrived in New York bearing a remarkalbe Curiosity...a mermaid caught near the FEEJEE Islands in the South Pacific. The Press were waiting to see his amazing discovery. What they saw conviced them of the creature's authenticity. Soon after this the Showman P.T. Barnum visited major papers where he explained that he was trying to convince the Dr. to display the mermaid. The Doctor Unfortunately was unwilling to do so. Barnum Volunteered to give papers use of a woodcut of a beautiful, bare breasted mermaid that he had prepared. Barnum distributed ten thousand copies of a pamphlet about mermaids. The Mermaids in the pamphlet were also respresented as seductive ocean maidens. It was later known that Dr. Griffin was in fact NOT an English Gentleman and was Barnum's Accomplice in the great deception. The Mermaid introduction and exhibit had been the brainchild of Barnum.
The presentation of human oddities in the Victorian era changed dramatically with P.T. Barnum and his famous exotic attractions. When Barnum arrived in England in 1844 the British showman were amazed that he was hoping to attract so much money for simply exhibiting Unfathomed Oddities. Freak Shows were also essential components of circus shows in America Such as The Ringling Brother Barnum and Baileys's Sideshow. The Stars of the Show were immortalised in Todd Browning's 1932 Film Freak. Living novelty acts continued on carnivals and midways in America and on the travelling fairs in the United Kingdom for most of the twentieth century. Tom Norman also known as "The Silver King" was the English counterpart of Barnum. He exhibited his performers in shop fronts, on his travelling fair or acted as an agent for the acts. Norman started his career as a sideshow exhibitor in the 1970's when he managed Eliza Jenkins "the Skeleton Woman and a whole range of freak show attractions. He stated in his autobiography "you could indeed exhibit anything in those days. Yes anything from a needle to an anchor, a flea to an elephant, a bloater you could exhibit as a whale. It was not the show; it was the tale that you told." For the British Side show performers their heyday was the Victorian period when the performers were household names and patronised by the general public and royalty alike. Many of the shows that appeared during the reign of Victoria were quickly superseded by the latest novelty or wonder of age. However , the waxworks display with the freak Show was perhaps the most continually popular travelling type of exhibition in the ninteenth century. Barnum retired in 1865 when his museum burnt to the ground...though Barnum was and still is criticized for exploitation of the acts, he paid the performers fairly handsome sums of money. Some of the acts made the equivalent of what some sport stars make today!
