These Elaborate Paper Wigs Prove The Higher The Hair, The Closer To God

by Madeline Raynor

Ladies in the Baroque period were not messing around when it came to wigs. The higher the hair, the closer to God. And sometimes, they added in a toy boat for good measure. Russian paper artist Asya Kozina crafted beautiful paper reproductions of these elaborate wigs. In this photo series by photographer Anastasia Andreeva, models sport her wigs as well as 18th century-inspired costumes.
