Theatrical headdress for the magical deer

Ravana (Thai: Thotsagan), a demon king, seeks to abduct Sita, the wife of the hero Rama. To lure Rama from Sita’s side, he has one of his demons take the form of a beautiful magic deer. When Sita sees it, she asks her husband to hunt it down for her. While he is away, Ravana succeeds in carrying her off.
