These three Nigerian hats are in the collection of Ray Hughes, in Sydney. One is dated 1991, the year of the first Iraq war, the second is inscribed “Saddam”. In 1993 Ray Hughes was the first gallery in Australia to mount exhibitions of war rugs from Afghanistan collected in Pakistan. See Tim’s essay in “Rugs of War”…
