Montera Picona

The second overseas donation from Rosa.  The Montera Picona is the traditional Asturian hat, made of dark wool and worn by men. It features a pointed tip that was once used to cover the face against the cold, though it is now largely ornamental.

 From the side you can better see the blue and yellow ornamentation.  Blue and yellow are the colors of the Asturian flag and coat of arms.
