A Topper for the Tipooh?

Update: First blush at Tipooh Sultan...


While I am well enough pleased with this result, it is not, in fact, the sort of headdress the Tipu was reputed to have worn.


Here we find Tipooh with a more traditional Mysorian headdress:


My proportions are obviously off. First attempt and I make no claim of being a sculptor. No doubt continued attempts would bear fruit however...


The Tipu himself


... the Bear's head is sloped forwards as opposed to human's more domed shape and I can't help but think that the Bear himself would lean towards the Western conception of turban rather than the realities of Mysorian haberdashery.

Thoughts

Thanks for stopping by!
