Convergence

I was looking at Chinese opera masks the other day. I was looking for cool women's headdresses to use as a D&D illustration.

Today, I am looking at picture of "traditional" Ruthenian costume.

The flowered headdresses the girls are wearing bear a striking resemblence to some Peking opera headdresses.

Coincidence or cross-pollenization? That's anyone's guess.
