Is this an unusual turban or what!? This sardar definitely took the time to sculpt this turban into a towering masterpiece! I remember during my school days in Mussoorie, India there was a group of Sikhs kids from Thailand. Some of them had some interesting methods of sculpting turbans into different shapes using plastic, pins, starch and other materials. Even having see-through cloth and shiny plastic behind, which made the turban shine and sparkle a bit. I love seeing how in each country there are different styles of Turbans. Such a flavor! It would be cool to document/catalog this into one place that you could see some of the turban styles of the world.

Do you tie a unique looking turban or know someone who does? Please send a picture my way if you do :)
